9781118112861: Local Planning for Terror and Disaster: From Bioterrorism to Earthquakes

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, a chapter 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, chapters by 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 encompasses aspects of emergency and disaster medicine, as well as techniques for diagnosis, rescue, coordination and security that are distinctive to a terrorist attack. Each chapter also includes a case study that demonstrates preparedness, or lack thereof, for a real or hypothetical event, including lessons learned, next steps, and areas for improvement in this global era which increasingly calls for preparedness at a local level.

From the Back Cover:

From bioterrorism to earthquakes — a unique guide for emergency responders

"A great read. At a time when funding for local preparedness efforts is waning, this book is a clarion call for reversing that trend. . . . Read it and be reminded how much depends on local response when catastrophe strikes."

—Thomas Inglesby, MD, CEO, Center for Biosecurity of UPMC

"An excellent addition to the discipline of disaster management. . . . Any disaster professional would benefit greatly from heeding its lessons."

—Jane Bullock, former Chief of Staff, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

"This book provides a unique approach to the true interdisciplinary requirements for responses to terrorist and disaster events. . . . It is an important read that will enhance our levels of preparedness."

—Marvin Birnbaum, MD, PhD, Chair of the Board of Directors and former president, World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine

Local Planning for Terror and Disaster presents a truly integrated approach to emergency response. It offers real-world strategies for handling all types of emergencies, covering such areas as bioterrorism, natural disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, public health policy, and emergency medicine. Written by leading experts on the cutting edge of terror medicine and other disciplines involved in local preparedness, the book clearly shows how proven techniques for dealing with terrorist attacks can be applied to accidental and natural disasters as well.

The authors begin with an overview of topics crucial for successful response efforts, discussing terror medicine, security, and communications among emergency responders. Throughout the remainder of the book they provide fascinating case studies, exploring the role of all involved in a given scenario—from emergency physicians and managers to law enforcement personnel and even bystanders and survivors. Each scenario includes detailed guidance on how to best communicate and coordinate response efforts among responders, assessment of the success or failure of response efforts, and suggestions for improvement.
