  2. people might say the bomb didn't blow anything up it justbomb squad and hazmat teams, as well as health officials, have equipment to detect the amount of radiation in the area.

          

  3. The most common examples of biological weapons includeis the DELAYED onset of symptoms

          

  4. Aside from written and verbal threats, possible indicators of a biological attack includeunusual numbers of sick or dying people or animals, and unusually high prevalence of respiratory involvement in diseases that typically cause a non-pulmonary syndrome, unexplained damage and ruin to crops and agricultural products, and abnormal swarms of insects.

          

  5. Dirty Bombs also know as :radiation dispersal devices

          

  6. symptoms of CHOKING AGENTSblurred vision, uncontrolled twitching, convulsions, seizures, or respiratory distress.

          

  7. When a person INHALES RICIN:symptoms begin 18-24 hours after exposure and include fever, chest tightness, cough, nausea, and joint pain

          

  8. symptoms of NERVE AGENTSblurred vision, uncontrolled twitching, convulsions, seizures, or respiratory distress.

          

  9. chemical weapon symptoms can present withinminutes or hours

          

  10. Smallpoxa contagious infectious disease that can be transmitted by prolonged face-to-face contact with an infected person, direct contact with infected bodily fluids, and direct contact with an infected objects (clothing)

          

  11. First responders of a biological incident mayrespiratory distress, burning of the lungs and airways, choking, and coughing

          

  12. radiation may not be readily detected by the senses, butbomb squad and hazmat teams, as well as health officials, have equipment to detect the amount of radiation in the area.

          

  13. Anthrax: If exposure occurs through the SKIN symptoms includeflu-like such as: respiratory distress, vomiting, and fever, occurs SEVERAL days after exposure.

          

  14. Biological agents can be dispersed throughfew hours, or may develop over a period of days.

          

  15. Biological: symptoms may appear within aliving organisms and are unpredictable and uncontrollable when released.

          

  16. (Ricin) severe respiratory distress and death can occur in36-72 hours

          

  17. Biological weapons containis EXTREMELY TOXIC:

          

  18. Dirt bombs areis a naturally occurring bacterium. The primary routes of exposure to anthrax are SKIN and INHALATION.

          

  19. ricin: within several days sufferers experience:dehydration, decreased urination, and decreased blood pressure.

          

  20. AnthraxHIGHLY TOXIC- poison found in SEEDS of the CASTOR BEAN PLANT. the primary routes of exposure to ricin are INGESTION and INHALATION. when ricin is INGESTED: symptoms begin a FEW HOURS; abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea

          

  21. Anthrax: if exposure is INHALED symptoms areflu-like such as: respiratory distress, vomiting, and fever, occurs SEVERAL days after exposure.

OCCUR WITHIN 12 to 80 HOURS OF EXPOSURE.

          

  23. Botulinum (Botulism)traditional bombs with radioactive materials loaded into the CASING. They are not considered nuclear weapons because they do not contain the same explosive power and their radiation is preloaded, whereas NUCLEAR weapons create radioactivity upon detonation.

          

  24. smallpox: after and INCUBATION period ofsymptoms begin 18-24 hours after exposure and include fever, chest tightness, cough, nausea, and joint pain

          

  25. Ricinis a naturally occurring bacterium. The primary routes of exposure to anthrax are SKIN and INHALATION.

          

  26. dirty bombs require both aradiation dispersal devices

          

  27. a key indicators of exposure to biological weaponsanthrax, ricin, smallpox, botulinum

          

  28. Inhalation of anthrax has a VERY HIGH MORALITY Rate whileskin exposure has a HIGH SURVIVAL RATE
