"Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Terrorism: Emergency Response and Public Protection provides emergency responders and the general public with expert instruction on: types of weapons of mass destruction that could be used in a terrorist attack; mechanisms and conventional explosives that terrorists could use to disperse nuclear, chemical, or biological agents; routes by which victims may be exposed to these weapons; health hazards resulting from exposure; emergency preparedness planning; reduction of exposure risks to emergency responders; reduction of exposure risks to the general public; decontamination methods; prioritizing the treatment of injuries; medical treatment options for victims; methods to best increase chances of surviving a nuclear blast; and radiation exposure guidelines." "A "Summary of Recommendations" chapter provides a quick synopsis for split-second look-ups in the field - delivering sound advice that can reduce risks, prevent panic, and save lives in the event of a terrorist attack involving weapons of mass destruction."--Jacket.
