Growing up professionally in the fire service, my department never had any emphasis on terrorism or how to respond.

Advice for students:
Take the time to really get into the textbook. Some weeks had a lighter reading load and the assessments could be completed by simply skimming through a chapter or two. Just read it, in today's world, the information in that book could save your life or your crew.
