Suicide Bomber Response 1.0

Suicide Bomber Response 1.0 

In recent months, suicide bombings have increased significantly in the Middle East, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. At this time, there has been no successful suicide bombing within the United States since 9/11. Current international trends dictate that it remains prudent to study these incidents, and develop effective public safety guidelines to deal with them. First responders must learn to work together to deter suicide bombers from attacking locations in their jurisdictions, and to safely respond, if an attack occurs.
