Links to the information produced by a CDC project on responding to blast injuries caused by terrorist attacks (from the Securing the Cities project):

“But the greatest threat isn’t posed by the direct harm terrorists could inflict; it comes from what we do to ourselves when we are spooked.”

Out of a clear blue sky? Time will tell! Tragic and sorry for all those dead and injured and their families. Hoping no HAZMATS contamination!
