Serving First Responders    Since 2000

This website was created to help improve the response capabilities of members assigned to civilian and military organizations and agencies that could respond to terrorist attacks or events involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) (e.g., chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive material). For the purpose of this website, first responders are members of emergency communications centers (ECCs); emergency medical services (EMS), fire, and rescue services; hazmat (HAZMAT) teams; law enforcement agencies; bomb squads; SWAT; hospitals; public health; risk management; security; emergency and disaster management; transportation and public works; gas, water and electric companies, and the American Red Cross, etc. Through information sharing, networking, planning, exercises, and research, first responders will  become better prepared to respond to and manage emergencies involving Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).

This arrangement of links provides for quick access and review by first responders.
