Our goal is to provide interested parties with information on critical areas that should be considered for both safety planning and general education. The approach to defending against a terrorist attack must focus on managing the consequences and becoming better informed through recognized information providers. This includes National, State and Local agencies that offer specific specialized services and competencies. Also provided is a wide array of preventative literature, detailing the actions that can be taken to better prepare in case of an emergency. Only through collaborative sharing of key information can districts provide the best civil defense against a terrorist attack.
