Chemical Weapons Improved Response Program (CWIRP) Playbook: Guidelines for Responding to and Managing a Chemical Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorist Event [open pdf - 1MB]
This Playbook, one of several products of the Chemical Weapons Improved Response Program (CWIRP) process, serves to identify the key issues that the program studied and provides basic recommendations and guidelines for enhancing response and management of a chemical incident. This document, along with the referenced material in Part VII, provides a comprehensive collection of knowledge of the CWIRP. The Playbook and other referenced documents are designed to build upon the DPP WMD training program awareness and operations training. The issues covered in the Playbook are intended to be applicable to the majority of jurisdictions across the country (large, small, metropolitan, rural). Jurisdictions and agencies using the Playbook to assist in preparation of plans, policies, and procedures for response to a chemical WMD incident are expected to adapt these recommendations to fit their current level of preparedness and staffing.
