Title: Emergency Response: Sarin Gas Attack
Developed under the guidance of Dr. John Mero, Political Science

Proper planning and response is an important part of the emergency administration and response field. Briefs are meant to supply pertinent information to policy-makers for decision-making purposes. The scenario involves a sarin gas attack at the Queens Plaza subway station in New York City, New York during a morning commute. Through several briefs, information about sarin, the subway station, governmental relations, military use, occupational health hazards, and communication plans are detailed. Concise, accurate data is of the upmost importance, as timely decisions and response can have a critical impact in saving lives.
