Using this reference as your guide, you'll learn how to assess your business's vulnerability to disasters, evaluate planning considerations, preserve records, and avoid the fate of those businesses that do not prepare and ultimately do not survive. In addition, you'll learn about your federal obligations under CFR Title 29, SARA Title III, CFR Title 40, and the National Fire Protection Association. The author provides new and updated information on terrorism, federal response, workplace violence, civil disturbances, sabotage, and hazardous responder competencies.
