Placer County has taken steps to prepare for a possible terrorist event. County emergency services, health care, and law enforcement professionals have met and planned county-wide response activities. They have expanded normal emergency preparedness activities to include training and preparation for possible terrorist events, including biological, chemical, and radiological events. In addition, they are planning and coordinating possible regional response activities with their colleagues in neighboring counties, and at the state and federal level. These activities will continue, and will also enhance Placer County's ability to respond to other sorts of emergencies, like hazardous-materials incidents or floods.
