Outlined in this article are resources such as:

· Safety Awareness for First On-Scene Responders Bulletin – Designed to assist departments and agencies in developing specific guidance and training that will enhance overall preparedness efforts.

· Reference Guide – Designed to assist HAZMAT response teams in developing specific guidance and training to enhance overall preparedness efforts.

· Medical Management Guidelines – Designed for those who medically treat patients exposed or potentially exposed to a fourth generation agent during pre-hospital care and in-hospital care.

“These resources were developed as part of ongoing preparedness efforts for all hazards,” a spokesperson from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) said last week. “These resources are intended for use by first responders and medical providers.”
