BIOLOGICAL THREAT

OVERVIEW:

A biological attack is the deliberate release of germs or other biological substances that can make you sick. Many agents must be inhaled, enter through a cut in the skin or be eaten to make you sick. Some biological agents, such as Anthrax, do not cause contagious diseases. Others, like the Smallpox Virus, can result in diseases you can catch from other people.


IF THERE IS A BIOLOGICAL THREAT:

Unlike an explosion, a biological attack may or may not be immediately obvious. While it is possible to see signs of a biological attack, as was sometimes the case with the Anthrax mailings, it is perhaps more likely that local health care workers will report a pattern of unusual illness or there will be a wave of sick people seeking emergency medical attention. You may learn of the danger through an emergency radio or TV broadcast, or some other signal used in your community. You might get a telephone call or emergency response workers may come to your door.

In the event of a biological attack, public health officials may not immediately be able to provide information on what you should do. It will take time to determine exactly what the illness is, how it should be treated, and who is in danger. However, you should watch TV, listen to the radio, or check the Internet for official news including the following:

  • Are you in the group or area authorities consider in danger?
  • What are the signs and symptoms of the disease?
  • Are medications or vaccines available and being distributed?
  • Where?
  • Who should get them?
  • Where should you seek emergency medical care if you become sick?



PROTECT YOURSELF:
If you become aware of an unusual and suspicious release of an unknown substance nearby, it doesn't hurt to protect yourself. Be prepared to improvise to protect your nose, mouth, eyes and cuts on your skin.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with layers of fabric that can filter the air but still allow breathing. For example, two to three layers of cotton such as a t-shirt, handkerchief or towel. Otherwise, several layers of tissue or paper towels may help if you don't have Emergency Dust Masks.
  • Wash with soap and water.
  • Contact authorities.



Cover Your Nose and Mouth

Be prepared to improvise with what you have at hand to protect your nose, mouth, eyes and cuts on your skin. Anything that fits snugly over your nose and mouth, including any dense-weave cotton material, can help filter contaminants in an emergency. It is very important that most of the air you breathe comes through the mask or cloth, not around it. Do whatever you can to make the best fit possible for children. There are also a variety of Face Masks available in our products that are rated based on how small a particle they can filter in an industrial setting. Simple cloth face masks can filter some of the airborne "junk" or germs you might breathe, but will probably not protect you from chemical gases. Still, something over your nose and mouth in an emergency is better than nothing. Chemical Gas Masks.

Antibiotics
While antibiotics are often an appropriate treatment for the diseases associated with biological attacks, the specific drug must match the illness to be effective. One antibiotic, for example, may be appropriate for treating Anthrax exposure, but is inappropriate for treating Smallpox. All antibiotics can cause side effects. Speak with your health care provider in advance about what makes sense for your family.

Use Common Sense
At the time of a declared biological emergency, if a family member becomes sick, it is important to be suspicious. Do not automatically assume that you should go to an emergency room or that any illness is the result of the biological attack. Symptoms of many common illnesses may overlap. Use common sense, practice good hygiene and cleanliness to avoid spreading germs, and seek medical advice.

  • Stay healthy. Eat well. Get plenty of rest.
  • Use common sense to determine if there is immediate danger.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water frequently.
  • In a declared biological emergency or developing epidemic, there may be reason to stay away from crowds where others may be infected.
  • Consider wearing a Face Mask to reduce spreading germs if you, yourself, are sick, or to avoid coming in contact with contagious germs if others around you are sick.


If you become aware of an unusual and suspicious release of an unknown substance nearby, it doesn't hurt to protect yourself. Quickly get away. Cover your mouth and nose with layers of fabric that can filter the air but still allow breathing. Examples include two to three layers of cotton such as a t-shirt, handkerchief or towel. Otherwise, several layers of tissue or paper towels may help. Wash with soap and water and contact authorities.


Symptoms
If a family member develops any of the symptoms below, keep them separated from others if possible, practice good hygiene and cleanliness to avoid spreading germs and seek medical advice.

  • A temperature of more than 100 degrees.
  • Nausea and/or vomiting.
  • Stomach ache.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Pale or flushed face.
  • Headache.
  • Cough or throat irritation.
  • Earache.
  • Thick discharge from nose.
  • Rash or infection of the skin.
  • Red or pink eyes.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Loss of energy or decrease in activity.



Hygiene
If someone is sick, practice good hygiene and cleanliness to avoid spreading germs.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water frequently.
  • Do not share food or utensils.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • Consider having the sick person wear a face mask to avoid spreading germs.
  • Share health-related information with others, especially those who may need help understanding the situation and what specific actions to take.


At the time of a declared biological emergency, if a family member becomes sick, it is important to be suspicious. Do not automatically assume, however, that you should go to a hospital emergency room or that any illness is the result of the biological attack. Symptoms of many common illnesses may overlap. Use common sense, practice good hygiene and cleanliness to avoid spreading germs, and seek medical advice.
