He is a retired U.S. Army Chemical Corps lieutenant colonel with more than 26 years of national and international experience in nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) warfare, counter proliferation, and homeland security issues. He is a recognized expert in foreign munitions, NBC agents, and NBC protection, detection, monitoring, and analysis equipment systems. Jeffrey A. Adams is the co-author of First Responders Guide to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD): Practical techniques and Procedures for Responding to a Terrorist Incident Involving WMD.

According to the book description of First Responders Guide to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD): Practical techniques and Procedures for Responding to a Terrorist Incident Involving WMD, “At the beginning of the 21st century, employment of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. homeland has become a reality. In the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the biological warfare agent anthrax has been utilized to cause sickness, death, and otherwise terrorize U.S. citizens. Attacks involving other weapons of mass destruction such as chemical weapons or even radiological devices could follow. First Responders Guide to Weapons of Mass Destruction is a concise "shirt-pocket" reference for the first responder who may be called to a site where WMD have been employed. It is also a primer for the average citizen desiring practical information on threat agents and procedures for surviving a
terrorism attack involving WMD. Unlike other references, this handbook covers nuclear and radiological weapons as well as chemical and biological weapons. The handbook presents straight-forward, easily understood, and potentially life-saving information.”
