    Abstract

    Chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents pose a serious at because of the physiological harm they may cause; the relative case of which they can be deployed; the diverse types and ces of CBW agents which exist; and the difficulty of identifying and classifying the agent (a factor aggravated by the large number of different agents that exist). This last point is particularly important when the CBW agent is encountered by a public safety or emergency services official who may be suspicious of a substance, but lacks the technical training to identify and safely handle the agent. To deal with these eventualities, this book is an invaluable resource which should be in the office of every emergency management official because of the potential of encountering these substances.
