    schema:description "Part II examines principles and practical methods for deterring explosive threats and mitigating damage for both new and existing buildings. Emphasis is placed on cost-effective measures that maintain the architectural integrity of facilities, while providing a higher level of protection to the occupants in case of a catastrophic event. The newly implemented Urban Search & Rescue (US & R) system is described, along with the engineer's role in that system, and how the Federal Response enhanced efforts of the Oklahoma City Fire Department and other agencies. Contents include initial hazard assessment, a chronological log of engineering activities, and a guide to building collapse evaluation."@en ;
