I have thought long and hard about this book. This book was not created to make money. It was created to save lives — the lives of first responders and the people they have dedicated their lives to protect, the general public.
What is a first responder? It is a phrase often mentioned in the press but rarely defined.
First responders are just that, the first on the site of an incident. They can be anyone, and more often than not, they are handicapped with too little knowledge and inadequate equipment. This book is based on software that another first responder and I developed to help alleviate these problems. It offers first responders a resource to pull out and consult very quickly that may completely change how a response proceeds.
Chemicals are a part of everyday life and can be found all around us. Many common chemicals, when mixed improperly (intentionally or not), can have serious implications for those who come into contact with them or are in their vicinity. This book is designed to give the user the ablility to quickly identify what type of explosive or chemical weapon could possibly be the focus of an investigation and what types of chemicals might be involved. It cannot be used to help manufacture these items. It is merely a tool for law enforcement to use in the war on terrorism and other types of criminal activities.
I dedicate this book to those who “step in it” first: The First Responder: Our First Line of Defense. They are always the first in and generally the last out. I know; I have been there myself.
