FEMA Weapons of Mass Destruction Study Course: Instructor Guide: Orientation and Exercise Course G 310.01 [open pdf - 4MB]
As part of its strategy to execute its mission, FEMA's Emergency Management Institute (EMI) has developed a series of courses, consisting of three sessions, which simulate the types of challenges faced by local communities following a WMD terrorist incident. The sessions are designed to help you analyze, discuss and identify your jurisdiction's needs. This course involves nuclear terrorism, as well as a radiological scenario and chemical scenarios (Sarin and and VX), and a biological (anthrax) scenario. The primary purpose of this course is to improve the ability of local governments to prepare for, manage, and respond to mass casualty terrorism incidents involving the use of WMD.
