ABSTRACT

Physical Security Assessment for Department of Veterans Affairs Facilities: Recommendations of the National Institute of Building Sciences Task Group to the Department of Veterans Affairs   [open pdf - 1MB]

In May 2002, at the request of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) assembled a Task Group of volunteer experts and a project team representing the healthcare, facility, security, and cemetery sectors to advise VA on what major emergency and disaster threats should be guarded against and how best to evaluate its facilities' vulnerabilities against these threats. The recommendations provided in this document serve as a collective deliberation of the Task Group to provide a plan for VA to assess systematically the vulnerability of its facilities and provide mitigation solutions in order to remain an effective part of the national emergency service during a national or local emergency.
