Emergency Response Report

Posted by Sam Churchill on


The Department of Homeland Security‘s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) today released a report, “Responding to Incidents of National Consequence“.

The report includes a prioritized checklist of recommended actions for emergency response agencies and other support information. It provides guidance to fire departments and emergency services across America to prepare for, respond to, and recover from major multi-jurisdictional local incidents that have national consequences and may involve national resources.

The report is based on information gathered about the responses to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism incidents in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania, the anthrax incident in Boca Raton, Fla., in fall 2001, the 2002 Winter Olympic preparations in the Salt Lake City area, and the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City.

The report can be downloaded from:www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/publications/fa-282.pdf
