In addition, Module 5 of the NLM Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) course focuses on REMM. The course as a whole provides a comprehensive background on all CBRNE threats. A Disaster Lit® search finds numerous freely available documents and resources on preparing for and responding to radiation emergencies.
