Lieutenant Colonel Roland Everett Langford is the author of Introduction to Weapons of Mass Destruction: Radiological, Chemical, and Biological.  He is also a co-author of Substance Abuse in the Workplace and Fundamentals of Hazardous Materials Incidents.

 

According to the book description of Introduction to Weapons of Mass Destruction: Radiological, Chemical, and Biological, it contains “Crucial information on nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons. From the diseased animal carcass hurled over the wall of a besieged castle to the nuclear suitcase bomb carried by a clandestine operative, the threat of unconventional weapons has always been a feature of warfare. Today’s danger comes mainly from the potential use of nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by international terrorists or rogue states. False alarms and misinformation about these weapons have abounded in the jittery post-9/11 atmosphere. To understand and deal with the actual threat posed requires basing response plans, policy, and reporting on actual facts.

 

Introduction to Weapons of Mass Destruction separates fact from fiction about NBC weaponry by providing clear, technically precise information. For each family of weapon, coverage in this handbook includes: History and background information; Agent types and delivery mechanisms; Effects of exposure; Protection; Safe storage and handling; Decontamination; and, Medical treatments.

 

Drawing from a broad array of military, scientific, and safety resources, this text offers both accessibility to the general public and accuracy and depth for professional emergency responders. Additional resources include a bibliography of references and a list of addresses and telephone numbers of federal and military agencies and professional organizations of interest. With full coverage of WMDs, from high-tech, genetically modified organisms to rudimentary radiological "dirty bombs," Introduction to Weapons of Mass Destruction is an essential reference for understanding and responding to these dangerous warfare agents.”

According to the book description of Fundamentals of Hazardous Materials Incidents, “This book evolved from the course developed at the U.S. Department of Labor's National Mine, Health, and Safety Academy to develop the legislation that eventually became 29 CFR 1910.120.Fundamentals of Hazardous Materials Incidents offers the reader a basic understanding of the principles involved in toxicology, federal regulations, respiratory protection, personal protective equipment, radiation, environmental considerations, industrial hygiene sampling, site safety, and chemically resistant suits. Thousands of people have been trained using this manual, now revised and available for the first time in hardcover format. The book is essential for identifying potential problems at hazardous waste sites, covers diverse topics throughout the area of hazardous materials response, and is ideal for training courses to meet 29 CFR 1910.120 requirements.”

 

According to the book description of Substance Abuse in the Workplace, “Substance Abuse in the Workplace makes a valuable contribution to the national movement to help stem the tide of drug abuse. The book begins with the history of substance abuse, continues with a discussion of how the human body functions normally or under the influence of chemicals, and follows with a toxicological description of the more common chemicals abused today in America. It discusses ways to help the abuser through identification and assistance programs and also covers the laws involved. The broad audience for Substance Abuse in the Workplace is includes middle and upper management, labor leaders, industrial hygienists, safety personnel, and workers.
