So I am teaching an EMT-B class again this year, but we are using a new curriculum this time. Tonights lecture is on terrorism and it has some "interesting" text. Under Domestic Terrorism it says; Groups or individuals whose terrorist activities are directed at a government or population, without foreign direction Environmental terrorists Survivalists Militias Racial-hate groups Extreme political or religious groups Then in the "teaching" section it says; "Have each student research an example of domestic terrorism. Discuss the threats that come from within." Then under Type of Event it says; Types of events with high suspicion of terrorist involvement Explosions and/or use of incendiaries Incidents involving firearms Nontrauma mass casualty incidents In the "teaching points" it says; "Explosions and/or incendiaries are among the favorite types of weapons used by terrorists. Incidents involving firearms are to be treated as suspicious, especially if they occur in conjunction with other indicating factors. Nontrauma mass casualty incidents have occurred more frequently as the arsenal of terrorism has increased. Any large number of victims without obvious physical injury but with the same or similar symptomology should be considered for terrorist involvement." Well at least I am teaching and can fix the problem with this. Also we are in an area where guns are prevalent and not "scary things", but this is being taught in a national curriculum.
