EPIcode was developed to provide emergency response personnel and emergency planners with a software tool to help evaluate the atmospheric release of toxic substances. EPIcode allows fast estimation and assessment of chemical-release scenarios associated with accidents from industry and transportation. EPIcode is used by the Arms Control Center to provide a fast evaluation of incidents involving toxic chemical material. The software is also used for safety-analysis of facilities handling toxic material. EPIcode is a first-order approximation of the harmful effects associated with the atmospheric release of toxic chemical materials. The Arms Control Center is currently working on a series of tutorials on EPIcode and this is an introductory one
