Bio-Response Operational Testing and Evaluation (BOTE) Project: Phase 1 - Decontamination Assessment [open pdf - 716KB]
"The Bio-Response Operational Testing and Evaluation (BOTE) Project was a multi-agency effort designed to test and evaluate a complete response to a biological incident - from the initial public health and law enforcement reaction through environmental remediation. The scenario involved the intentional release of 'Bacillus anthracis (Ba)' spores, the causative agent for anthrax, inside a building. In this study, 'Bacillus atrophaeus spp. globigii (Bg)' spores were used as a non-pathogenic surrogate for Ba spores."
