Abstract
Many emergency response workers do not believe that they are adequately prepared to respond to a major disaster such as the World Trade Center attack or the anthrax scare, according to three reports of worker input released by RAND and NIOSH. The first two reports show a need for research, training and other strategic approaches to help protect emergency responders in terrorist attacks. The third report recommends that better planning, training, coordination and management procedures are needed to protect emergency responders at the scene of terrorist attacks and disasters. This CD-ROM contains copies of the following reports: Peterson DJ, Bartis JT, LaTourrette T, Brahmakulam-I, Houser A, Sollinger J [2002]. Protecting emergency responders. Lessons learned from terrorist attacks. http://www.rand.org/pubs/conf_proceedings/CF176.html. LaTourreteT, Peterson DJ, Bartis JT, Jackson BA, Houser A [2003]. Protecting emergency responders.
