BACKGROUND.

EPA's Office of Research and Development’s National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) requested the Science Advisory Board to provide technical advice on an interactive online risk assessment and management software tool being developed to provide health advisors and other emergency response officials with rapid access to critical information during an environmental emergency or training exercise. The Emergency Consequence Assessment Tool (ECAT) is intended to help assess and provide site-specific numeric estimates of health risks for selected chemical, biological and radiological threat agents and to help identify what response actions might be appropriate to mitigate health risks
