In the current climate of terrorism, the facility manager is in a more critical position than ever before. Protecting the organization's building and its occupants from chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) attacks that are designed to disrupt and/or destroy business operation is becoming an increasingly important priority for facility managers. This book addresses CBR attacks, as well as other forms of terrorism concerns, such as mailroom security, bomb threats, etc., along with the necessary steps for prevention, how to assess vulnerability, how to improve emergency preparedness, and how to assure optimum response and recovery in the event of an attack. Examples of "lessons learned" and mistakes to avoid are also included.
