Return to Toolbox Main.
This three-volume set is a collection of training and tutorial material compiled for awareness level training on how to respond to incidences involving nuclear, radiological or chemical weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The material was created from a variety of government, university, and private foundation sources specializing in WMD emergency preparedness.
It is targeted at three distinct audiences involved in emergency response: public health staff, medical ER staff, and fire/first responders. It also contains a training section for trainers who may present the material as provided, or may customize from the various sections to emphasize certain emergency response concepts as needed.
Users should first review the README file, study the tutorial modules in Appendix A, step through the training presentation slides in the folder for their particular background interest, then take the post-training tests in Appendix B. Tutorial tests are also provided at the end of each module in Appendix A and may be submitted to the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center Office of Professional and Continuing Education for CME/CEU credits.
