Critical Preparedness and Response Reports

In 2015 San Bernardino County experienced a devastating act of terrorism. The attack simultaneously exhibited characteristics of organized terrorism, workplace violence, and countless active shooter incidents. The county was the employer of one of the perpetrators and all but one of the victims. It was also the provider of essential and mandated government services that had been targeted.

San Bernardino County published two reports. The Legacy Report offers a guidebook on preparedness, response strategies and recovery efforts for others to utilize in the wake of a mass casualty incident. The Organizational Review
 documents the county's own experiences and assessments of its response. Both reports and other information can be found here.

Outdoor Recreation Survey

As part of the State Outdoor Recreation Plan planning process, the Pa. Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has released an online survey to acquire input on outdoor recreation in Pennsylvania.
