      Chemical incidents
    • Description:
      The featured topic for this PCPHCoP newsletter is chemical incidents. The United States faces threats of both large- and small-scale chemical incidents from chemical material accidents involving transportation, chemical installments, and industrial facilities, as well as intentional acts of terrorism [1]. In the United States, up to 100,000 industrial chemicals are used every day, and approximately 15,000 potentially consequential releases of toxic substances occur each year [2, 3]. Chemical incidents often unfold rapidly, and serious exposure symptoms may develop just as quickly.

      First responders and healthcare professionals must triage and care for the victims of a chemical incident; thus, they need to be prepared to respond appropriately. Having easily accessible and readily available experts in toxicology, like PC staff, is important during such an incident. PCs expert personnel and surveillance capabilities play a pivotal role in the success of a chemical incident response.
