ABSTRACT

Compendium of Weapons of Mass Destruction Courses Sponsored by the Federal Government   [open pdf - 512KB]

"The U.S. Army Soldier and Biological Chemical Command (SBCCOM) was designated as the Program Director for Domestic Preparedness to coordinate, integrate, and execute a program to enhance domestic preparedness to nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) terrorism. The purpose of this program is to provide for training of state and local emergency responders in the event of a terrorist incident involving nuclear, biological or chemical (NBC) weapons of mass destruction. The Domestic Preparedness program is providing the train the trainer courses to only the first 120 cities by population. This program cannot address the training needs of the entire nation, although it does greatly enhance the nation's current state of preparedness. The federal agencies recognize this and have prepared this compendium of other federal courses which relate to the performance objectives developed for the Domestic Preparedness Train-the-Trainer courses."
