Description : The aim of the training is to take participants through all the steps of a reconnaissance of a chemically-contaminated scene. They learnt how to work together as to evaluate the risks, collect samples, take pictures, and leave the scene without spreading the contamination. This training is a step up from the yearly Weapon Contamination Unit "Survive to operate" training that introduces delegates to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) hazards.
