Chemical Terrorism

Published on: 2/13/2013 4:19 PM
There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to describing the types and effects of possible chemical agents but the information contained in the pamphlet from the United States Department of State provides important general information.  This pamphlet provides a broad overview of the chemical and biological terrorist threat and, drawing on the lessons learned from the few chemical and biological incidents to date, suggests some basic means of detection, defense, and decontamination. The intention is not to alarm people but to enable employees and their family members to recognize and properly react to a chemical or biological situation in the even they encounter one.
