Critical Preparedness and
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.
