The second part of the symposium will focus on toxic threats and chemical security. The agenda includes discussions on chemical threats, toxic industrial chemicals, planning a large-scale chemical response, access to reliable information, and new and developing medical countermeasures and antidotes. Presentations will also include challenges of fentanyl and fentanyl analog exposures, management in cyanide poisoning, bystander reactions to chemical incidents and decontamination protocols.
