|Facing disaster, Part 2|
Scott Buhrmaster, PoliceOne Managing Editor & In the Line of Duty
The video footage and duty sheet/lesson plan are from the "In the Line of Duty" video Volume 9 Program 9 - "Facing Disaster Part 2"
In last week's video tip, In the Line of Duty shared lessons learned from the brutal battering of Florida during the '04 hurricane season. This week, we share an introduction to Part 2 of their special series, "Facing Disaster.”
Focus now switches from natural disasters, which may allow for per-strike protective action launched by timely weather alerts, to terrorist attacks which hit quickly and unexpectedly.
We urge you to download the associated lesson plan as well as the bonus "Terrorism Quick Reference Card” and study them in an effort to bolster your level of preparedness.
