As the U.S. Government has warned several times in the past few years, chances are there WILL be a terrorist attack on U.S. soil someday. It seems to be inevitable, according to sources within many areas of emergency preparedness at all levels. There are some recently created Federal organizations that exist to DEAL with ANY incident that might happen, and while every possible method and possible scenario is being studied and prepared for, there is in all probability going to occur BioChem attacks SOMEDAY…whether the terrorists are domestic or international. 

The table below lists the most prevalent threats that could happen, any symptoms that might occur, and effects that will happen if left untreated. Use this data to begin your search on the web to find SOLUTIONS to survive any of these BC potential threats, and make preparations for your family and yourself based on what YOU think may be most fearsome to you. 

IF the government is concerned enough about this threats to spend billions of tax payer dollars getting ready, then YOU should spend a little time learning more about the same areas. I would offer to post any SPECIFIC solutions to surviving an actual attack of ANY of these BioChem threats on this same page, and will update as this info comes to me.
