Terrorism and WMD response is increasingly becoming a responsibility of fire departments working in an ever-dynamic all-hazards environment. Following the attacks on 9/11, many fire departments sought additional training on how to respond to large- and small-scale threats and even biological weapons. Firefighters now train on how to mitigate active shooter events, scenes where fire is used as a weapon, and other incidents of mass violence. The FireRescue1 Terrorism Response resource page offers information to prepare for terrorist events, plus videos and podcasts to help firefighters prepare for mass violence incidents. Additionally, download the FireRescue1 eBook How to buy armored rescue vehicles.
