From the Document: "Bombings using improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are a common security concern related to terrorism and violence in the United States (U.S.). High-profile domestic incidents have occurred and international attacks are frequently in the news. Outdoor events venues are not immune from IED incidents, including bomb threats, suspicious items, and actual bombings. This guide defines tasks and related processes that security managers and staff at outdoor events venues can use to understand and improve their ability to perform counter-IED (C-IED) activities and make decisions. This guide is designed to provide security managers and staff at outdoor events venues with: 1) A practical framework to examine their ability to perform C-IED activities, and 2) Supporting guidance and materials to strengthen their C-IED preparedness."
