COURSE DESCRIPTION Effective response to a terrorist WMD attack depends on the capability of local responding agencies to rapidly focus available assets in accordance with valid operational plans to save lives to the greatest extent possible. This will require a portfolio of models based on good science and workable command, control and logistics adapted to local conditions. A portfolio of models is offered and discussed, each outlining preparation, principles, execution, standards of response and projected outcomes. The initial portfolio will be expected to include response to biological, chemical and radiological events.
