  • Design Basis threat, level of protection, defensive layers
  • Building ranking, mitigation, level of protection
  • Threat rating, consequence rating, vulnerability rating
3

What preparations are needed in order to safely shelter in place?

  • Supplies to seal the room, HEPA filter, food and water, windows and a well practiced plan

The concept of Design basis Threat (DBT) is essential to building protection because?

  • DBT establishes the threat tactics that architects and engineers use in designing mitigations for a new structure or renovation.
  • DBT establishes the minimum criteria necessary for the proper selection of window thickness and fragment retention films.
  • DBT provides the mitigations necessary to ensure that standoff is kept to a minimum.
  • DBT provides a means to identify and characterize all threat groups operating in the local
