Overview

Is your community prepared for a biological terrorism incident? While no community is fully equipped or funded for a major attack, it is possible to develop and implement effective local response plans, protocols, and guidelines. New from Delmar, Preparing for Biological Terrorism contains vitally important information to guide local agencies in their efforts to secure and coordinate the influx of state and federal resources before, during, and after an attack.

Subsequent chapters enable readers to immerse themselves thoroughly in specific elements of successful emergency planning, including: passive, active, and medical surveillance; biochemical detection, notification, and diagnosis protocols; agent surety; mass prophylaxis; the national pharmaceutical stockpile program; and more! Knowing that they are arming themselves with the latest information as to what to look for and how to respond, all readers of this emergency services planning guide will be able to heighten their vigilance while going freely and confidently about their daily lives.
