What is included with this book?


A concise presentation of structural vulnerability issues, this resource focuses on the range of vulnerabilities that can and should be addressed from design implementation through securing a building from intrusion from all types of threats. It aids building owners and operators in quickly determining appropriate risk management both during normal operation and when emergencies occur. The volume explores ventilation systems, the value of sheltering versus evacuation, design options, decontamination methods, and mechanical systems. It also presents summaries of regulations that are used to determine if chemicals create a risk to off-site locations or constitute a homeland security vulnerability.
