Book Description

First Response to Bombing Incidents and Weapons of Mass Destruction offers the information that a first responder needs to make safe, informed decisions while at an incident concerning a weapon of mass destruction (WMD). This book provides information concerning the weapons themselves, how the devices work, how they are likely to be used, how to recognize them, how to conduct searches for them, how to spot booby traps, and how to calculate possible damage in order to evacuate the area properly. Important issues of jurisdiction enable the responder to establish authority for each kind of incident and set up an incident command system. International incidents are included.
