This course is designed to prepare first-responder personnel to take the appropriate course of action at the scene of a potential terrorist incident. The course will provide students with a general understanding and recognition of terrorism, defensive considerations (biological, nuclear, incendiary, chemical and explosive), as well as command and control issues associated with criminal incidents. The student will be able to recognize and implement self-protective measures, secure the scene, complete appropriate notifications to local, State, and Federal authorities, and assist in completing a smooth transition from emergency to recovery and termination operations.
Must be admitted to the A.A.S. Homeland Security Degree Program or Pre-Homeland Security Program.
