Terrorism Supplies

It's a good idea to assemble a terrorism disaster supply kit at home and learn first aid. Separate the terrorism supplies you would take if you had to evacuate quickly, and put them in a backpack or container, ready to go. An attack can happen at any time, we must be prepared.

Acts of terrorism range from threats of terrorism, assassinations, kidnappings,
hijackings, bomb scares and bombings to the use of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.

In the immediate area of a terrorist event, you would need to rely on police, fire and other officials for instructions. However, you can prepare in much the same way you would prepare for other crisis events.

Preparing for terrorism:
Assemble a disaster supply kit at home and learn first aid. Separate the supplies you would take if you had to evacuate quickly, and put them in a backpack or container, ready to go. Be prepared to do without services you normally depend on that could be disrupted — electricity, telephone, natural gas, gasoline pumps, cash registers, ATM machines, and Internet transactions. Be prepared to respond to official instructions if a cyber attack triggers other hazards, like a general evacuation, evacuation to shelter, or shelter-in-place, because of hazardous materials releases, nuclear power plant incident, dam or flood control system failures.

Review emergency evacuation procedures, and know things such as:

Where emergency exits are located.

Keep fire extinguishers in working order. Know where they are located, and learn how to use them.

Learn first aid. Contact your town or the Red Cross for information and training.

In case of a chemical or biological weapon attack near you, authorities will instruct you on the best course of action. This may be to evacuate the area immediately, to seek shelter at a designated location, or to take immediate shelter where you are and seal the premises. The best way to protect yourself is to take emergency preparedness measures ahead of time.
