Security and Resiliency Guide: Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Concepts, Common Goals, and Available Assistance   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "The 'Security and Resiliency Guide: Counter-IED [improvised explosive device] Concepts, Common Goals, and Available Assistance (SRG C-IED)' is intended to assist stakeholders to plan and implement C-IED activities within their overall public safety and emergency management approach. The SRG C-IED builds off of foundational guidance by providing more detailed guidance specific to countering IEDs, including IED risk information and a series of common C-IED goals and associated tasks derived from U.S. C-IED policy and input from subject matter experts. In general, entire communities, individual organizations, and specific facility owner/operators can strengthen their security and resilience for IEDs by using this guide to: [1] Understand the IED risk landscape in the U.S. and your locale, including the essential characteristics of IEDs and IED incidents (Chapter 2); [2] Apply common IED-specific security and resiliency goals and tasks designed to prevent incidents from occurring, protect people and infrastructure, and help respond and recover safely (Chapters 3 and 4); and [3] Leverage available U.S. Government programs to build and sustain preparedness, for example through technical assistance and grant programs in the areas of training, information sharing, planning, exercises, personnel, and equipment."
