Federal Employee's Emergency Guide, 2003   [open pdf - 255KB]

"More than ever, the work of Federal employees is critical to the well-being and security of our Nation. However, Federal employees face unprecedented uncertainty. Individuals who are unwilling to impact the world through constructive efforts have instead stated their intention to harm freedom-loving civilians. While terrorists are determined in their hatred, they cannot match the strength, ingenuity, or systems of our democratic Government. Just as they typically rely on rudimentary methods to attack unprotected and unsuspecting individuals, we must increase our vigilance to deal effectively with man-made or natural threats. The intent of this guide is to provide a general document that educates Federal employees on the repercussions of various attack scenarios (or unintentional accidents) and to identify the steps that employees can take before and during an attack to mitigate the repercussions of an event. While the scope of this guide is to provide general information, resources (with website addresses) have been included which offer more comprehensive information on preparing for emergency events."
