Terrorism & Weapons of Mass Destruction

This module introduces the added dimension of a deliberate terrorist event, without notice, and explores the challenges associated with chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive hazards. Examine a coordinated, multi-jurisdictional, multi-discipline response. Understand the complexity of such attacks and how current and emerging technologies can support the response to such incidents. -Compare and contrast deliberate acts of terrorism to other types of disasters with respect to public reaction, incident management, hazard characterization, triage, public health and first responders/first receivers. -Understand the challenges to quantifying and communicating the risks for high consequence/low probability events and identify mechanisms to promote civic responsibility and overcome apathy. -Recognize the role of technology and its limitations in making sound decisions.
