ABSTRACT

Identify Potential Impacts of an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack on Fire and EMS Delivery Services for the Walpole Fire Department   [open pdf - 5MB]

"The problem was that the Walpole Fire Department did not know the potential impacts of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack on both fire and emergency medical delivery services. The purpose of this research was to identify potential impacts of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack on both fire and EMS [emergency medical services] delivery services for the Walpole Fire Department, to decide whether the Walpole Fire Department was vulnerable to such an attack, and to determine whether we needed to develop a plan for EMP awareness and recognition."
