Radiation Dispersal Device Report and Video
Posted On: Apr 09, 2019

Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD) Response Guidance Planning for the First 100 Minutes Report and Video

https://www.dhs.gov/publication/st-frg-rdd-response-guidance-planning-first-100-minutes  

Scroll down on the page to watch the video.  Below the video is a Link to download the ‘First 100 minutes’ guidance document if you do not already have one.

This 20 minute Video by Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and the National Urban Security Technology Laboratory is the BEST description of management of a ‘Dirty Bomb’ – Radiological Dispersal Device incident out there. 

Your LAW ENFORCEMENT  and  FIRE/HAZ personnel MUST view this video.  It should become a REGULAR PART of your training for ANY RADIOLOGICAL event.  Your Emergency Managers and Command Staff SHOULD watch this video to understand a Radiological Incident.

INSTRUCT YOUR PERSONNEL TO PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE DOSE/DOSE RATE ‘BUBBLES’ ABOVE EACH PERSON.  NOTE THE DOSE RATE RELATED TO THE PROXIMITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL TO THE HOT PARTICLES, AND THE CUMULATIVE DOSE FOR EACH PERSON.

--TIME IS THE ENEMY WHEN RADIATION IS PRESENT.--    The longer victims are in the radiation field, the more injury. 

So, keeping victims contained in the detonation location for witness management will cause increased exposure and potential injury!!!

You will possibly see this video at various presentations, but that will not be for some time.  PLEASE distribute this link for your personnel to WATCH ASAP.
