Security refers to protecting the facility from adversaries who wish to harm people and the environment. Safety and security are accomplished by using people, equipment and physical protection. This book explores the safety and security threats to our nations nuclear facilities and the measures and techniques in place to thwart any such emergency. (Imprint: Nova)
