Science Notebook: Preparedness
If an emergency occurs, EPA has trained emergency responders and scientists on standby ready to hit the ground running. Whether we're responding to chemical, oil, biological, or radiological releases or even large-scale national emergencies, EPA responders use a wide variety of scientific equipment and instruments to protect human health and the environment. Check out some of our cool scientific tools to better understand the science behind EPA's preparedness and response activities.
