ABSTRACT

Impersonation of First Responders   [open pdf - 275KB]

"First responders provide the first line of defense for nearly all critical infrastructure sectors and the general public during natural disasters and other physical emergencies. However, malicious actors, both international and domestic, seeking to exploit the public trust first responders have earned, have sought to impersonate first responders in order to do harm to the American people, exploit site vulnerabilities, or destroy critical infrastructure. Malicious actions include the acquisition of authentic or fraudulent uniforms, equipment, vehicles, and other items that may be associated with law enforcement, fire, and emergency services personnel. Therefore, it is imperative emergency services organizations maintain an awareness of the current threat environment and continue to remain vigilant."
