This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

The Manual to Mitigate Potential Terrorist Attacks Against Buildings is a reference manual published by the Department of Homeland Security that encompasses FEMA-426 and BIPS- 06. The manual presents methods that can be executed over a period of time to “increase resiliency” of a building, “as well as decrease the vulnerability to hazards and terrorist threats” of said building (Department of Homeland Security, 2011). This manual helps in establishing mutual terminology between sectors and agencies to “facilitate the transfer of… information” (Department of Homeland Security, 2011). Additionally, it aids in transferring “concepts that have been in use” by the Department of Homeland Security, as well as other departments such as the DoD and DoS, “to commercial practice” (Department of Homeland Security, 2011). Meaning that it aids in applying military style security procedures to public and commercial spaces.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
