The Observatory on Security and CBRNe Defence – OSDIFE, the European Centre for Disaster Medicine, the University of Health Sciences – CBRN Department – Turkey, the State University of Republic of San Marino – Center for Security Studies, and the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” – Department of Electronic Engineering are pleased to present the “CBRNe Disaster & Incident Medical Management Online Course” taking place on 19-20 September 2023 in Ankara, Turkey.
The escalating prevalence of natural, incidental, and intentional CBRNe (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive) threats has underscored the crucial need to enhance risk analysis, preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery capabilities in the face of unconventional events or incidents. In response to this demand, we are pleased to announce a comprehensive training course designed to equip participants with the essential knowledge and skills required for the effective management of CBRNe events at both regional and national levels. Moreover, the course goes beyond theoretical learning, offering a unique practical exercise conducted at the CBRN Department of University of Health Sciences. This activity will provide trainees with hands-on experience and practical insights, ensuring their preparedness to handle real-life scenarios.
Training program general objective: the Course covers subjects related to CBRNe materials, prevention, protection measures, medical procedures, risk assessment, response to CBRNe events/incidents, and inter-agency coordination and communication. Throughout the Course, attendees will actively participate in discussions and interactive sessions, fostering a dynamic learning environment. To ensure a comprehensive training experience, CBRN exercise simulations will be conducted using EMS training manikins, PPEs, gas masks, along with a decontamination station. The organizing institutions will issue a final certificate of attendance.
Target Group: this course is tailored for emergency management personnel, emergency medical services, fire service personnel, governmental administrative staff, healthcare professionals, law enforcement personnel, armed forces, public health officials, public safety communications experts, and public works personnel.
