Abstract : The report presents progress made over the last year in a continuing program to define, develop, and test options that industry can apply in advance of a disaster to reduce vulnerability and accelerate recovery. Progress discussed in the report covers a variety of topics where additional work was undertaken in 1981 to augment the self-help procedures in the industrial hardening manual previously developed at Scientific Service, Inc. Among the topics discussed are: approaches taken to foster development of industry interest in emergency preparedness; and investigation into expedient methods an industry might apply to supply onsite utilities when public utilities are not functioning, prevent or reduce toxic materials releases, or reduce damage from rapid shutdown of facilities. In addition, assessments of the production processes and equipment inventories of a number of industries are described which are analyzed to identify the nature of common production elements that critical industries require for their operations. Assessments or other end-users of these or similar production elements were also initiated to establish some non-critical industries among them who could act as sources for substitute elements in emergencies.
