WMD-detection equipment is essential for keeping communities safe. The faster agencies can identify a threat, the quicker they can mitigate it. First responders use this equipment to detect chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or explosive (CBRNE) threats, all of which can cause substantial loss of life.

The best approach for identifying any hazard is to use several different methods of detection. For example, to detect or verify the presence of ammonia, you might use a multi-gas meter with a photoionization detector (PID), a handheld meter with an ammonia sensor, pH paper for corrosivity, and a colorimetric tube to back up the previous findings. Each method has limitations, but together they provide responders with reliable information.
