National Coalition to Educate About Possible 'Dirty Bomb' Attacks

In an effort to raise public awareness to the impact of possible radiological attacks against the nation, a new national, not-for-profit and nonpartisan coalition was launched by a group of first-responders, business groups, health advocates and homeland security experts.

The Radiological Threat Awareness Coalition (R-TAC) seeks to prepare, protect, and prevent a radiological disaster in our country by providing information and resources on the risk of a radiological catastrophe such as a series of "dirty bomb" attacks.

Specifically, R-TAC will:

  • Educate the public about radiological threats and ways to protect against a possible attack.
  • Support federal and state level efforts to better prepare the nation against radiological threats.
  • Call for adequate funding of the nation's first responders to defend against radiological attacks.

The coalition also announced that James P. Pinkerton will serve as the organization's first chairman. Pinkerton is a former White House adviser and long-time national media personality.

"Since 9-11, Americans have known terrorism knows no borders nor boundaries. Yet we must come to grips with the reality that perhaps the greatest danger we face is inside our own borders--here in the U.S. So we urgently need to do more to protect and prepare our country against this hideous threat," Pinkerton said.
