Following a brief welcome by General Martinez-Lopez, witnesses testified about ways to combat biological weapons, and the most effective means of preventing and responding to a biological attack. They outlined the mission, goals, and needs of the Fort Detrick facilities. After focusing primarily on protection for members of the armed forces prior to 9/11, the facility had to begin work on methods to protect the general population as well. Interest was expressed in decreasing the latent period between the identification of a threat and the implementation of an appropriate response. Witnesses also responded to questions from the audience. close
