WebWISER provides the WISER functionality via the Internet, without downloading of software or data to the desktop. It has a consistent look and feel of the WISER for Windows desktops/laptops and PDAs. WebWISER supports web browsers for both PCs and PDAs, including BlackBerry.
WISER (http://wiser.nlm.nih.gov) is an application designed to assist first responders in hazardous material incidents. It provides a wide range of information on hazardous substances, including chemical identification support, physical characteristics, human health data, and containment and suppression information.
For free downloads of WISER for PDAs and Window PC platforms, a tutorial, and links to other useful information for emergency responders, go to the general WISER website (http://wiser.nlm.nih.gov).
