This report on Responding to a Radiological or Nuclear Terrorism Incident: A Guide for Decision Makers provides a comprehensive analysis of key decision points and information needed by decision makers at the local, regional, state, tribal and federal levels in responding to radiological or nuclear terrorism incidents. It provides a framework for preparedness efforts by describing in depth the information that should be acquired and communicated as a basis for the decision-making process. This Report is written with consideration of basic information that may be useful to planners developing local and regional response plans that in turn should be used to support training and exercise programs to prepare for acts of radiological or nuclear terrorism. The Report provides valuable supplementary information in support of the U.S. National Response Framework, the National Incident Management System, and other federal and state guidance that has been issued in recent years.
