About the threat of biological and chemical warfare:

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Among weapons of mass destruction, biological weapons are more destructive than chemical weapons, including nerve gas. In certain circumstances, biological weapons can be as devastating as nuclear ones—a few kilograms of anthrax can kill as many people as a Hiroshima-size nuclear weapon. The United States is unprepared to deal with a biological attack. Over the past several years, preparedness strides have been made, especially in the largest cities. However, much of the needed equipment is not available. Pathogen sensors are not in place to detect that a biological attack has taken place. New medicines are needed.

Chapter 6, "Metropolis, USA," offers chronological descriptions of local responses that would follow a chemical or biological terrorist attack and shares innovative ideas from local emergency personnel on coordination, plans, tactics, and capabilities for dealing with these type of incidents. Finally, the report concludes with an extensive series of observations and recommendations for policy makers in Washington and beyond...

PBS Special Report
Emergency rescue crews in cities across the U.S. are accustomed to handling hurricanes, hazardous spills and fires. But what about clouds of poisonous gases or air-borne spores of deadly germs? What once seemed like an exotic threat is now a terrible reality in some parts of the world. In 1995, the Japanese cult Aum Shinrikyo attacked the Tokyo subway system with sarin gas, killing 12 people and injuring about 5,500. The TV pictures of the incident begged a grim question: Could such an attack happen in the U.S.?
