    Default What are you doing to prepare for a terrorist attack?

    How is your outfit being proactive about the threat of terrorism? We have started health initiative programs to keep our people in shape. In case of another attack we have to be fit to save others and our own lives.

    I'm not sure how exercise relates to terrorism preperation. Being healthy is something everyone should be mindful of just as part of what we do. It has nother to do with terrorism. You're much more likely to need that physical agility at a "routine" daily incident than a bombing.

    But to answer the original question.... we have more organized and better equiped regional hazmat teams now than we did 9 years ago. Everything is regional. There isn't much an one department around can be expected to do to "prepare" for a terrorist attack.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
