Leonard, R., Winslow, J., and Bozeman, W. (2006). Planning Medical Care for High-Risk Mass Gatherings. The Internet Journal of Rescue and Disaster Medicine 6(1).
The authors outline security requirements for mass gatherings with a focus on presidential and dignitary visits (and good discussion of the role of the local and federal agencies) and describe the role of emergency medical services coverage for various threats that could lead to mass casualties (e.g., hot weather and terrorist incidents).
