Urban Shield and a Look at Real Risks for Terrorism in U.S.
This week on the Disaster Podcast we return with a second part of the episode we started with last week. Host Sam Bradley and I had paramedic and emergency planner for Memphis Fire Department Jim Logan on the show to talk about Sam’s experience with the Urban Shield program that is run in her county to train people for tactical emergencies. Urban Shield is a comprehensive full-scale regional preparedness exercise that assesses the overall Bay Area UASI Region’s response capabilities related to multi-discipline planning, policies, procedures, organization, equipment and training.
