Opis: Local Planning for Terror and Disaster - Nancy D. Connell, Leonard A. Cole

Local Planning for Terror and Disaster gives voice to experts in key fields involved with local preparedness, assessing the quality of preparedness in each field, and offering directions for improvement.Introductory chapters provide overviews of terror medicine, security and communications, which are indispensable to successful preparedness, while subsequent chapters concentrate on a particular field and how responders from that field communicate and interact with others during and after an event.Thus, achapter by a physician discusses not only the doctor's role but how that role is, or should be, coordinated with emergency medical technicians and police.Similarly, chaptersby law enforcement figures also review police responsibilities and interactions with nurses, EMTs, volunteers and other relevant responders. Developed from topics at recent Symposia on Terror Medicine and Security, Local Planning also encompassesaspects of emergency and disaster medicine, as well as techniques for diagnosis, rescue, coordination and security that are distinctive to a terrorist attack.Each chapteralso includes acase study that demonstrates preparedness, or lack thereof, for a real or hypothetical event, including lessons learned, next steps, and areas for improvement inthisglobal erawhich increasingly calls for preparedness at a local level. "'Local Planning' may be among the most important books published this year..."-- Warren Boroson, newjerseynewsroom.com "Leonard Cole and Nancy Connell have produced an essential book, not just for counterterrorism and disaster preparedness professionals, but for each and every American. We can't prevent disasters but we can mitigate them, and the key to mitigation is preparedness. I know of no better place to look for that key than in the pages of this book."-- Clark Ervin, Former Inspector General, US Department of Homeland Security "A great read. At a time when funding for local preparedness efforts is waning, this book is a clarion call for reversing that trend. Leading experts and practitioners from across the preparedness spectrum provide vivid case studies and give valuable judgments about what matters most in responding to disasters and terrorism. Read it and be reminded how much depends on local response when catastrophe strikes."-- Thomas Inglesby, MD, Director of the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC "This text is an excellent addition to the discipline of disaster management. It includes realistic case studies to introduce the diverse range of disaster and terror situations that medical, security, or other professionals should be prepared to address. Any disaster professional would benefit greatly from heeding its lessons."-- Jane Bullock, Former Chief of Staff, Federal Emergency Management Agency "This bookprovides a unique approach to the true interdisciplinary requirements for responses to terrorist and disaster events as it translates findings from case studies into actions needed for preparedness. Thus, it provides much needed information for the disciplines that comprise disaster medicine, including administration and security. It is an important read that will enhance our levels of preparedness."-- Marvin Birnbaum, MD, PhD, Chair, Board of Directors, World Association for Disaster and Emergency MedicineCONTRIBUTORS vii PROLOGUE xi ACKNOWLEDGMENTS xiii PART I INTRODUCTION: THE KNOWN AND THE UNKNOWN 1 Preparedness, Uncertainty, and Terror Medicine 3 Leonard A.
