This Office of State and Local Domestic Preparedness information bulletin announces "…the release of two first responder training videos produced with funding provided by the Office for State and Local Domestic Preparedness Support (OSLDPS). The videos are intended to provide emergency response agencies with helpful information that could be used to enhance the emergency services and first responder capabilities in their jurisdictions. The production of the films were made possible with the dedication and support of the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) and the Seattle Fire Department. GEMA coordinated the production of the, 'Surviving Weapons of Mass Destruction' training video which is designed to enhance the survivability of first responders during an incident of biological terrorism. The Seattle Fire Department handled the production of the 'Weapons of Mass Destruction and the First Responder' video, and provides the viewer with helpful information to recognize when to use existing assets and resources on-hand within the jurisdiction which could be used to mitigate a terrorist incident and shape a jurisdiction-wide response to mass casualty terrorism."
