If your region has a hazardous material incident and emergency responders need immediate access to vital information—where do they access the information they need? What happens if the network goes down that provides the data?
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has developed a fantastic app to help—the Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders (WISER). WISER provides information on hazardous substances, including substance identification support, physical characteristics, human health information, and containment and suppression advice.
