As terrorists become more determined to cause chaos, the possibility of them using chemical or biological weapons increases. An attack of this nature in any county would pose a great danger to the entire world. Modern technology has made it easier for terrorists to produce chemical and biological weapons for use in public areas. In order to prevent attacks, or contain the spread of disease or chemical exposure, the response must be rapid, organized and thorough. Forensic Aspects of Biological and Chemical Terrorism is an eye-opening resource for first responders, health care professionals, law enforcement agencies and government officials. It provides valuable insight into what response areas need improvement and what responder roles should be. It extensively covers the investigation of attacks from the signs and symptoms of diseases and chemical exposure to scene investigation.
