UFOs and public safety: Firefighter manual explains risks
by Steve Hammons

Posted: 13:20 April 11, 2009

What do public safety officials and the general public have a need to know about possible unidentified flying objects (UFOs)?

One aspect of the phenomena that may be important involves the possible dangers of "close encounters" with these objects, craft or energy anomalies.

According to a 1992 firefighter training book, A Fire Officer's Guide to Disaster Control, the two main hazards are powerful anomalous energy fields and psychological impacts.

The authors of the guide, Charles "Chuck" Bahme and William Kramer, primarily focus on conventional concerns and duties of firefighters and fire agencies throughout most of the book.

In addition, the authors included a chapter titled "Disaster Control and UFOs." In a section of the chapter "Adverse Potential of UFOs," the authors go into greater detail about some of these hazards.

Other sections of this chapter provide useful background information for public safety professionals and the public.


Physical dangers noted in the guide include exposure to radiation, unusual energy fields, beams or rays, according to Bahme and Kramer.

These energy fields have been also been associated with disruption of communications, vehicles and aircraft malfunction, power grid operations as well as physical injury, they point out.

Exploring the potential psychological impacts of UFO contact, the guide notes that based on past incidents, public panic should be a concern of firefighers and other public health and safety personnel.

The panic itself can contribute to accidents, injuries, distress and problematic behavior.

In this sense at least, the manual explains that fire services should consider plans to deal with outcomes from apparent UFO incidents, particularly in metropolitan regions.
