Introduction to CBRNE Terrorism

In the event of CBRNE terrorism the rescue and treatment of victims and control or containment of fire and other hazards will be greatly complicated by the  fact that the site may also be contaminated with substances that pose an immediate threat to the health and safety of the emergency responders.

This Introduction to CBRNE Terrorism (2006) serves as a guide for emergency responders, exploring issues surrounding nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. The guide details how to handle suspicious mail, emergency decontamination, self-protection for responders and other issues that may arise as a result of CBRNE terrorism.

The guide is authored by Robert J, Heyer, a Hazardous Materials Specialist, and published by The Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response Association.
