DFW is Disaster Ready

A new distinction to DFW airport that should be of some comfort to those who travel there. It is one of three airports in the country with state of the art equipment now to respond to a weapon of mass destruction.

The airport has spent $2 million on a mobile command post, decontamination tents, and equipment to treat passengers in the event of a chemical or biological attack. On Wednesday, DFW firefighters demonstrated how they would be able to decontaminate more than 300 victims in an hour.
