Hazardous Agent Emergency Uniform Response Act - Directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services to develop protocols for responding to public health emergencies resulting from the release of dangerous biological agents or chemicals. Requires such protocols to be : (1) specific to the hazardous agent involved (unless the agent has no unique characteristics); and (2) uniformly applied through coordination with emergency response personnel, dissemination of appropriate medical information, testing, treatment, and decontamination. Requires differentiated responses for intentional (as opposed to accidental) releases.
