Building Terrorism Mitigation - Site Layout and Design
This online engineering PDH course discusses site-level considerations for development. The intent of this guidance is to provide concepts for integrating land use planning, landscape architecture (vegetation, landforms, and water), site planning, and other strategies to mitigate the design basis threats as identified via the risk assessment.
Integrating security requirements into a larger, more comprehensive approach necessitates achieving a balance among many objectives such as reducing risk; facilitating proper building function; aesthetics and matching architecture; hardening of physical structures beyond required building codes and standards; and maximizing use of non-structural systems.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, planners, architects, landscape designers, construction and operations personnel, security and law enforcement agents, as well as consultants and contractors to gain a better understanding in identifying and implementing crucial asset protection measures when planning and designing the site against potential terrorist attacks.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Planning the use of land
- Selection the site
- Orienting the buildings on the site
- Integrating vehicle access, control points, physical barriers, landscaping and parking,
- Protecting utilities for threat mitigation
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 2 "Site Layout and Design Guidance" of the FEMA Publication, "Mitigating Potential Terrorist Attacks Against Buildings" (FEMA 426).
