The Weapons of Mass Casualties and Terrorism Response Handbook provides emergency personnel with information about potential terrorist weapons. Covering chemical agents, biological agents, radiation emergencies, electronic terrorism and directed energy weapons, and personal protection and decontamination, the Handbook provides a brief history, signs and symptoms, personal protective measures, and treatment modalities for the various topics. This is a book about mass casualties, not mass destruction. Although many lump chemicals and biological weapons with nuclear weapons and conventional terrorism as weapons of mass destruction, weapons of mass casualties do not necessarily cause mass destruction as well. Instead of causing mass destruction, weapons of mass casualties cause fearsome casualties, society-paralyzing panic, and emergency situations that may overwhelm all available medical facilities and surviving providers, but these weapons may also be chosen particularly because they avoid any significant destruction of property.

Before September 11, 2001, hazardous materials (Hazmat) in general, and Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in particular, were specialty fields. Today, they are a vital part of our health and safety. Federal and local protocols regarding WMD preparedness are changing daily. Additionally, JCAHO has modified its standards to include compliance requirements for the health care industry's response to WMDs, for those facilities that seek accreditation. This text was developed in response to the growing need for education about WMD. Medical Response to Weapons of Mass Destruction quickly, yet thoroughly, brings health care workers and emergency responders up to speed and prepares them to respond to the release of weapons of mass destruction, such as biological, nuclear, incendiary, chemical, and explosive agents. Contains detailed information on WMD response including types of locations that may become targets for criminal or terrorist activity, procedures, equipment, and safety precautions for evidence preservation. Highlights signs, symptoms, and treatment protocols for common agents that may be used. Lists specific actions necessary when an incident is suspected to involve criminal or terrorist activities, necessary notification procedures, personal protective equipment needs, appropriate detection devices, mass casualty decontamination, and scene management procedures. Meets the new federal and state laws regarding Hazmat response. Helps hospitals comply with JCAHO standards for accreditation Covers OSHA (29 CFR 1910-120) and EPA (40 CFR 311) standards to the Operations level Covers NFPA 473 completely (to Level II)

The Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS) program of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) provides funds to major U. S. cities to help them develop plans for coping with the health and medical consequences of a terrorist attack with chemical, biological, or radiological (CBR) agents. DHHS asked the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to assist in assessing the effectiveness of the MMRS program by developing appropriate evaluation methods, tools, and processes to assess both its own management of the program and local preparedness in the cities that have participated in the program. This book provides the managers of the MMRS program and others concerned about local capabilities to cope with CBR terrorism with three evaluation tools and a three-part assessment method. The tools are a questionnaire survey eliciting feedback about the management of the MMRS program, a table of preparedness indicators for 23 essential response capabilities, and a set of three scenarios and related questions for group discussion. The assessment method described integrates document inspection, a site visit by a team of expert peer reviewers, and observations at community exercises and drills.
