CBRNe Awareness Training of the NCT Team with Hotzone Solutions Group and the International CBRNe Institute

Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNe) threats are increasingly being used by state and non-state actors worldwide, enhancing their lethality and finding ever-changing ways to deploy them. In our mission to make this world a safer and more secure place, IB Consultancy (IBC), the creator of NCT events and magazine, is ramping up its efforts to understand CBRNe issues threatening the general population as well as military and civil first responders; the policies governments around the world are employing to fight these threats; and the equipment being developed by industry leaders to assist in this effort. Over the last week, we took another important step in that direction by undertaking a CBRNe awareness course given by the Director of Operations of Hotzone Solutions Group, Magnus Backlund and the President of the International CBRNe Institute’s (ICI), Mr. Yves Dubucq at the ICI HQs in Les Bons Villers, Belgium. The Awareness Course included: amplifying our knowledge of CBRNe agents and their effect on the human body; the detection of an array of CBR agents; the stages of contamination and decontamination; and the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required when confronting the greatest dangers of today. The course provided the IBC team with an invaluable experience and the knowledge needed to continuously serve the CBRNe community.
