First Responders Guide to Weapons of Mass Destruction is a concise "shirt-pocket" reference for the first responder who may be called to a site where WMD have been employed. It is also a primer for the average citizen desiring practical information on threat agents and procedures for surviving a terrorism attack involving WMD.
Unlike other references, this handbook covers nuclear and radiological weapons as well as chemical and biological weapons. The handbook presents straight-forward, easily understood, and potentially life-saving information.
At the beginning of the 21st century, employment of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. homeland has become a reality. In the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the biological warfare agent anthrax has been utilized to cause sickness, death, and otherwise terrorize U.S. citizens. Attacks involving other weapons of mass destruction such as chemical weapons or even radiological devices could follow.
