Quick Response Guides for Emergency Response
CSS prepares tactical, field, and quick response guides used by EPA OSCs and other first responders to address a wide range of contaminants.
Protecting First Responders and On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs) with Targeted Guidance on Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Risks
CSS prepares tactical, field, and quick response guides used by EPA OSCs and other first responders to address a wide range of contaminants. The 40+ guides prepared since 2007 provide detailed information on personal protective equipment, field methods and procedures, and testing and decontamination equipment. To prepare and update the guides, we work closely with EPA’s Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Working Groups and experts from other federal agencies and academic institutions. We search available scientific literature, draft documents, incorporate comments, and produce the final guides in hard copy and electronic formats. As new information becomes available, we prepare updates.
