Bannockburn, IL. IPC International Corporation, the nation's elite provider of shopping center security, training and operational programs has released a new Counterterrorism Guide created exclusively for IPC serviced shopping centers.

As terrorism concerns have escalated throughout this decade, IPC International Corporation felt that it was crucial to develop a single-source guide to provide counterterrorism information and training to employees.  Following 9/11, IPC Counterterrorism Guides have been a resource benefiting every IPC property.  The original guide has been continually updated with government contacts, fresh training programs, and emergency bulletins from agencies like the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.

"IPC is determined to provide our employees and clients with the very latest crisis information in a clear and concise format.  Our latest version of the guide includes new input from two of IPC's National Advisors on Terrorism and Counterterrorism; Northwestern University Homeland Security Instructor, Dr. Joseph Troiani Ph.D., and Dr. Robin McFee a noted expert in toxicology, bioterrorism and weapons of mass destruction," states Don Sandel, Senior Vice President, Training and Professional Development.

Some of the Counterterrorism Guide highlights include:

  • Threat Response Guide: information, guidance, and specific recommendations based on the Homeland Security Advisory Threat level.
  • Department of Homeland Security Contact Information: latest contact information per state
  • Quick Bite Training Presentations (CD and hardcopy versions): 
  • Terrorism Awareness
  • Pre-Operational Indicators
  • Suspicious Substances and IED's
  • Vehicle Inspections
  • Consequence Management I - III
  • Chemical and Biological Response
  • Incident Command System

Along with the updated guides, IPC also distributed the WMD Response Guide Book from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, as a supplement to the training.
