The document is a self-study course that is designed to provide first responders with basic concepts of awareness at the scene of a potential terrorist incident. Terrorism incidents can involve the release of bacteria, viruses, and toxins, in addition to the release of radiation, incendiary devices, and chemicals. Knowledge about response procedures will help prevent fatalities. The course helps train first responders to recognize the chief indicators of a crime scene; identify appropriate responder activities and considerations at a crime scene; differentiate between the purposes of threat assessment and risk assessment; and identify outward warning signs and indicators of lethal agents. The course provides training on identifying characteristics of the six common types of harm, such as thermal and radiological; contrasting the value of different self-protective measures in dealing with the common types of harm; differentiating among the hazards that can occur at various incidents; and relating the protective measures of time, distance, and shielding to various incidents. First responders will learn to explain the need for an Incident Command System; list the steps or processes traditionally associated with responding to an emergency; and name and explain the nine common steps of the planning process. They also will identify responsibilities stated in an emergency operations plan; identify functions included in a Federal Response Plan; differentiate between crisis management and consequence management; and identify correct procedures to be completed under the Robert T. Stafford Act
