ABSTRACT

Compendium of Federal Terrorism Training for State and Local Audiences   [open pdf - 440KB]

"The ability of state and local governments to respond effectively to acts of terrorism depends on the knowledge and skills of elected and appointed officials and first responders. In April 2002, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducted a study for Congress that focused on terrorism training, from Federal agencies, for state and local officials. While gathering information for the study, FEMA staff heard repeatedly that local officials and responders need a single source of information on available training. In partnership with FEMA's Office of National Preparedness, the Training Division, United States Fire Administration, developed this searchable on-line database to provide a single source for terrorism training information. This database represents the first step in FEMA's goal of developing an overall terrorism training management system. The information contained in the database comes from the updated Compendium of Federal Terrorism Training for state and local audiences and includes information provided to FEMA by several federal agencies."
