Overview

Bioterrorism is a clear and expert guide to protecting yourself and your family in large-scale emergencies. It provides critical information about the most likely biological threats and explains the basic steps to take before, during, and after a terrorist attack or other emergency situation.

This concise book includes complete information about different biological weapons and accidents including the symptoms, the emergency response you should take, testing and diagnosis, treatment, special precautions, and preparation tips. It includes special sections for the care of children, pregnant women, and pets.

Awareness, preparation, and effective rapid response are critical, not only for first responders – the police, fire departments, paramedics, hospital personnel and other emergency service staff – but for those who will truly be first on the scene: ordinary citizens. Based on what you read in this book, you may be the one who identifies the symptoms or knows what do during a biological incident. This book – as well as the author’s other e-books, Chemical Disaster and Nuclear Disaster – will help everyone to become better aware of potential threats and to better carry our roles. There is no weapon more effective than information.
