T-CBRN: Preview #2
In 2017, the CDC issued an emergency use authorization for a new atropine auto-injector manufacturing company because there was a sense there were not enough atropine auto-injectors in the national stockpile. Atropine is the standard drug treatment for nerve agent exposed casualties. Currently, the TCCC committee and FEMA are working on Chemical Warfare Agent casualty management guidelines. The TECC committee published guidelines in August 2021.
Chemical weapons remain a credible threat. Manufacturing of nerve agents is within the technical skill of anyone with graduate-level chemistry expertise.
