Assessing the Vulnerability of Buildings

From a homeland security standpoint, typically office, storage, and manufacturing buildings are not the subject of a man-made disaster, such as a terrorist attack. Such attacks would typically limited to critical locations such as "key" government buildings, so-called "symbols of democracy," transportation centers, nuclear power plants, and locations where "products of war" are produced (e.g., airplanes, helicopters, missiles, and other combat-related items). Nonetheless, standards are emerging for property owners and building managers to assess the vulnerability, or risk level, of their site and its facilities to a possible terrorist attack.
