2.Type a response to this student’s response below. (BRENT) My service has various methods in place in the place of a bioterror incident. We have the protocol to contact the appropriate resources. This would be special trained hazmat units which the local fire department has. They will also contact the national guard training chemical unit which is about one hour away. We actually have had to use them and they showed up with all equipment and their PPE and properly managed the scene.
