• Secondary sources supported by research in primary sources.
• Credible sources (experts in the area of study).
• Relevant research (materials are pertinent to the area of study).
• Educational websites may be appropriate in some cases but should be evaluated carefully.
The following are examples of what is not acceptable for academic research and referencing:
• Wikipedia, other wikis, or blogs
• Websites and other sources that do not provide quality, researched materials (sites that do not use credible sources to support the information in their documents).
All research must reflect professional academic protocol and be formatted according to APA standards as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Please see guidelines for avoiding plagiarism).

The reference page must include at least five academic sources. In addition to the required APA citation for each source, the reference page should also include a summary of each of the selected sources. The summaries should include the following information:

• A brief explanation/summary of the source. (Identify what the article is about or explain what the author tested, etc.)
• A brief explanation of how this source will contribute to your Final Recovery Plan.
Chemical Scenario: Chemical Attack on the Super Bowl
The New England Patriots are taking on the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl, located in the Louisiana Superdome. The Superdome's capacity for a football game is approximately 72,000; and the stadium is packed to capacity with excited football fans.
At the beginning of the second quarter fans report a bitter almond smell coming from both the men and women's bathrooms. Hydrogen cyanide (HCN), a colorless gas form of cyanide, has been released into the stadium via the vents in the Stadium bathrooms. Fans that have visited the bathrooms are experiencing the worst symptoms, while all fans and players are beginning to display symptoms of cyanide poisoning.
Create a recovery plan based on this scenario, which is specific to a chemical attack. Address all of the necessary criteria for the Recovery Plan as it relates to this chemical scenario.
