Resources and Guidelines

Below are a variety of resources for emergency health care providers to care for the community, ensure their own safety and stay up-to-date on information during a mass casualty incident.

FBI's ABCs on WMDs Series 

Medical staff and first responders are on the front lines for recognizing and detecting patient exposure to dangerous pathogens, toxins, chemicals, or radiological materials. These agents may have significant impact on people, property, the economy, and/or critical infrastructure (like your medical facility). The FBI's ABCs on WMDs podcast series will educate the medical community to be better equipped and knowledgeable about all aspects of a WMD threat or incident: how to prepare for, mitigate, and respond to this type of medical emergency.

  • Episode 1 - C is for Coordinator: To educate the medical community on what are the roles and responsibilities of the FBI during a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) threat or incident and whom with the FBI to call if such an event occurs (your local WMD Coordinator).
  • Episode 2 - T is for Triggers: To educate the medical community on chemical, biological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) triggers that may indicate a WMD threat or incident has occurred.
  • Episode 3 - E is for Evidence: To educate the medical community of what may be evidence that is brought into or generated from treating patients within your facility.
