There are many available books on CBRN response and HAZMAT as well as a few books on security for major events; however there are none that overlap. When planning for the safety and security of major high-profile events, whether they be sporting events (e.g. Olympics), public ceremonies (Royal weddings, state funerals, inaugurations), or similar large gatherings there need to be proper plans, tactics, techniques, and procedures for planning and responding to any potential hazard.This book split into four main parts covers these main areas. The first part provides general planning and preparedness procedures such as planning considerations at the early stages, developing a response network, and training and exercising. The second part focuses on the planning and preparedness for different providers (i.e. Medical, Fire, Police, Military, and VIP Protection). The next part covers incident response including initial response, detection and ID, and law enforcement. Finally the book provides 14 specific scenarios in the last part.
