From the Back Cover
Sets forth what to do and what not to do to keep people and property safe
Based on the author's more than two decades of managing core facets of emergency planning and response, this book enables readers to minimize the possibility of a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) disaster or a hazardous material (hazmat) incident at public events. Moreover, it sets forth the tools needed to quickly respond to an incident in order to avoid or minimize casualties and damages. With its comprehensive approach, the book equips readers to plan for and manage a multi-disciplinary safety and emergency response team, including police, security, medical, military, and fire and civil protection personnel.
CBRN and Hazmat Incidents at Major Public Events examines all aspects of security planning and emergency response, including:
- General planning and preparedness procedures such as initial considerations, response network development, and training and exercise
- Planning and preparedness for security and emergency response providers, including medical, fire, police, military, and VIP protection personnel
- Incident response, including initial response, detection and identification, and law enforcement
Lastly, the author provides fourteen specific public event scenarios, explaining what to do and what not to do for effective emergency planning and response to CBRN and hazmat incidents. These scenarios also set the foundation for preparedness training and exercises.
Throughout the book, sidebars summarize the author's extensive operational and managerial experience, helping readers focus on the core tested and proven strategies and techniques needed to prevent or mitigate the impact of a CBRN or hazmat incident. With its unique focus on CBRN and hazmats, this book is essential reading for all personnel charged with protecting lives and property at large public events.

Nevertheless I read the book and as a result I was fully prepared for action when our local village fete was struck by a bio/radiological incident this summer.
What can I say, this book is a lifesaver.

I can only imagine how techniques discussed herein can be usefully employed against upcoming gatherings, such as the LA basin prison riots, the succession of the South, and sewing bee circle uprisings. While some have previously underestimated the potency of knitting needles, HS and the TSA have rightly known for a long time that small sharp objects are the most dangerous of weapons at 30,000 ft. This is in large part due to a complete lack of cavalry-based fighting units of any kind--it's simply infeasible to mount such a unit in the tight hind-quarters of an airplane.
However when a chemical weapon attack occured at our annual village flower show this summer I knew exactly what to do, thanks to Dan.
What can I say. This book is a life saver.
exactly the target audience for this book... the book is primarily aimed at law
enforcement agents, and shall we say law enforcement and I don't exactly see eye to eye... But I digress... The book has a lot of good advice, particularly in chapters five and six. When we established our homestead on the western crook of Black Crook Peak in the late 1980s, this spot was the ideal place for our survival compound: We had security. We had isolation. We had water, even. The world could literally go to Hell in a handbasket, and we're prepared. Except for that little fact that Dugway proving ground is right down the road. You see, I'm not worried all that much about the terrorists, rural Utah isn't exactly the center of their bullseye. But I'm worried about our "government". They've got all sorts of scary stuff over at Dugway: ebola monkeys. The largest stockpile of existing anthrax virus (remember 2001?!!!). Things they can't tell us about. And it's only one Level 4 containment breach away from my front yard. But the book provides solid advice for not only how to equip our homestead, but how to *prepare* as well. When the inevitable event actually happens, we'll be ready. We've drilled. We've equipped. We've planned. And when we hear the sirens, we'll be ready to make the most of our Golden Hour. We will survive. The question is, will you? This isn't the only prep you need, but it's a good start.
