This award-winning web site is intended for emergency personnel and for building operators. It contains our current advice for dealing with a biological or chemical release in a building. It will be updated as our advice changes.

The advice on this site is appropriate for small and medium-sized releases such as those that would be expected from a terrorist attack, not for industrial-scale releases such as those at Bhopal, India or Chernobyl, Ukraine.
