This monograph will be included in a future ACGIH® Signature Publication that will be entitled: Air Sampling Technologies: Principles and Applications. It presents basic information to help those interested in first response begin the searching and evaluating process to obtain air sampling equipment that will suit their specific needs for emergency response to the potential use of “weapons of mass destruction (WMD).” This collection of background information and sources for additional reference has important implications for those involved in emergency services, law enforcement, and counterterrorism teams, as well as for others involved in prevention, such as border patrols, transportation, and customs agents. It is further intended for occupational health and safety professionals, scientific researchers, and public health managers involved in design and implementation of prevention or first response programs. Readers are asked to keep in mind that air sampling alone cannot provide all the information needed by first responders. There are numerous other texts and websites covering personal protective equipment, incident response, and facility preparation that are not discussed here.
