FSF Releases New Training on Terrorism Planning and Response for Smaller Communities

The Firefighters Support Foundation’s (FSF) newest training program is now available. Terrorism Planning and Response for Mid- and Small-Size Public Safety Agencies addresses the role of public safety agencies in preparing for and responding to the grave potential threat of small-scale terrorism in the majority of the country. Not all terrorism incidents are of a 9/11 or Oklahoma City scale, and virtually every community has some potential target within its boundaries. The program consists of a one-hour video presentation and an accompanying 66-slide PowerPoint.
Covered topics include: Who are the most likely threats for small and mid-size communities? What are the methods they employ? Why might your quiet, small community be a target? Pre-incident planning, lessons learned, incident response tactics, Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices, and more. The presenter is August Vernon, the well-known emergency management trainer.
The program is free to all members of public safety and emergency management agencies. Simply go to www.ffsupport.org to download your copy.
