IAEA Creates Portable First Response Assistance Tool for Radiological Emergencies

The Portable First Response Assistant for Radiological Emergencies is a tool that may be used by emergency service personnel as an aid in the field when responding to a radiological emergency. It is based on the material in the IAEA Manual for First Responders to a Radiological Emergency and contains quick guides with response actions, instructions, and information useful in the first response to a radiological emergency.

The tool has been designed for use on portable devices, such as hand-held computers and smart phones, and requires only a Web browser to be used.
