ASG recently developed and conducted an innovative training workshop for CBRN/Hazmat responders, fire departments and emergency managers. Applying 6 years of lessons learned and observations from over 1,500 field exercises with various hazmat, fire, medical, law enforcement, responders and emergency managers, ASG developed a unique and highly-effective training platform to integrate the USAF's Fire and Emergency Services, Bioenvironmental Engineers and Readiness and Emergency Management functions into a seamless, unified response operation.ASG developed a 40-hour curriculum consisting of hands-on training with state-of-the-art, field analytical instruments, knowledge-based training, application of field instruments for specific activities and tasks, and coached exercises. ASG conducted the two-week training event at the Silver Flag Exercise Site on Tyndall AFB, FL.This is the latest innovation from ASG aimed at building advanced and integrated all-hazards response capabilities. Regarding the impact of this latest service, Bob Campbell, ASG President/CEO, stated, "We measure the success of our services based on participants' feedback and performance measures throughout the event. It was really exciting to see the participants excel throughout the week and then read through their feedback to confirm our initial impressions."The training and exercises had several objectives for the 72 participants: Exercising the Hazmat specialist/technician capabilities; Reinforcing the NIMS principles; and Integrating each disciplines capabilities for successful response ops.CBRN ChallengeWhat is a CBRN Challenge™?Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Challenge™ is a combination of training, coaching and evaluation through a series of scenarios designed to enhance emergency responder capabilities for CBRN and Occupational and Environmental Health (OEH) situations.The CBRN Challenge™ is designed not only to validate proficiency, but to teach innovative techniques and synchronize various on-scene and supporting capabilities to include command and control, hot-zone operations, decontamination, sampling, analysis and health risk assessment.CBRN Challenge™ PDF FlyerScenarios • Biological Attack • Nuclear Detonation • Radiological Dispersal/Exposure Device • Mailroom Response • Toxic Industrial Material Release • Water System Attack • Sensitive Site Exploitation/Assessment • Environmental Site Assessment • Unknown Chemical Response/ Hazmat Incident • Natural Disasters • and Many More...
