"Good basic information regarding threats and explosive devices."
"I am a PA fire instructor and I teach HAZMAT in which terrorism is part of the program so this information is very beneficial, especially additional resources that may be of benefit that were mentioned in this Webinar."
"Presentation was very general in nature. Speaker did not inspire confidence that he knew his subject material."
"August Vernon did a great job presenting the material. There does not seem to be much new, but the review was helpful."
"I appreciate Mr. Vernon speaking to all of the different disciplines. I can take the information given and apply it to my Hospital work environment. Thank you for the great opportunity."
