Format: Paperback
This book is loaded with factual information that would be of value to any first responder, or anyone who just has an interest in learning more about potential hazards to local and national security. As a member of a local Medical Reserve Corps, I found this quite informative, and in some instances, detailed beyond my understanding. I did, however, think the author brought together a lot of valuable information in a solid one-stop resource.
