BeschreibungDrawing on author Robert Burke's 26 years of experience in emergency services and his skills as a hazardous materials consultant, Conter-Terrorism for Emergency Responders, Second Edition details the characteristics, actions, identification, and containment of all types of possible agents. With chapters on chemical and biological agents, explosive, nuclear, and incendiary devices, the author prepares the first responder to handle everything from re-establishing control and on-scene triage to training. He outlines the changes in emergency response tactics since the 9/11 attacks and examines new techniques and devices for monitoring and detection, protective equipment, and decontamination.
