Chlorine Gas: An Evolving Hazardous Material Threat and Unconventional Weapon

NIH the leading Government Health study and advanced health protection Agency, has been involved in the study of the health risks of chlorine exposure, both accidentally and now more concern is about terrorist attacks. If exposed make sure everyone possibly involved are monitored for at least 48 hours. Some people have had delayed reaction to even small amounts of the chemical. Washing off the chemical is the first advice given, but even that can be hazardous if in confined breathing situations. Storage can be critical since the chemical can have even more dangerous reaction when mixed with other chemicals, ammonia being one, and since both are used in cleaning products are often stored in closets and storage sheds together. EP teams need to be aware of the potential problems, a place that should always be checked is where pool cleaning and maintenence supplies are kept.
