DECISION MAKING IN RAPID ASSESSMENT AND DIAGNOSIS OF CBRN EFFECTS ON COASTAL LAGOONS
Numerous examples of response plans exist for natural emergencies, such as floods, hurricanes, fires, etc., in many areas of the world, as in the National Incident Management System in the United States which was developed so that responders from different jurisdictions and disciplines can work together to better respond to natural disasters and emergencies, and the Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response (CEPR) in Canada (http://www. phac-aspc.gc.ca/cepr-cmiu/).1 Plans that handle industrial chemical disasters also have been developed, such as the Seveso Directive II (named after the Seveso accident in 1976). This was developed by the European Commission in discussions with representatives from EU Member States and is an EU Directive that serves to mitigate and minimize accidents, threats, and hazards from industrial accidents involving dangerous substances (http://www.cemac.org/english/E2009002.html).2
