ABSTRACT
The article discusses the role of firefighters during a terrorist act. The main role of firefighters remains active response to terrorist acts. According to the author, any information about the structural capacity of buildings should be readily accessible to all forces that must respond to an incident of suicide bombing. Guidelines should be drawn up, and in combined force drills, team leaders should have an idea about the structural situation of key buildings in their areas. Also, communications equipment should take into account that heavy use from the blast site sometimes causes problems with the entire system and creates frequent system crashes.
