Joint Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defence Centre of Excellence

An Accredited NATO Military Body

Over 200 attendees from 7 countries (BEL, CAN, CZE, DEU, FRA, UK, USA) participated in the NATO multinational exercise Clean Care 2016 that was conducted at the military training area Tisá from 19-23 September 2016. This cross-disciplinary CBRN and Medical training event was aimed at NATO interoperability at a tactical level, in order to provide CBRN medical support including the management of any casualty in a CBRN environment from point of exposure through to a Role 2 Medical Treatment Facility.

The Director of the JCBRN Defence COE assumed the role of the Officer Directing Exercise, provided the Exercise Director and together with the NATO CBRN Medical Training Liaison Team and 31st CBRN Regiment undertook significant duties in Exercise Control (EXCON).

The exercise from its early beginning proved that there can be little doubt that NATO CBRN and Medical disciplines are very closely interwoven by mission and have variety of areas to exercise in order to respond to threats which stem from the current strategic and industrial environment. For such reasons the Clean Care 2016 was run as a Non-Article 5 Crisis Response Operation within a NATO approved scenario which addressed an allied action in the area with a complex CBRN and Epidemiological risk. By doing this, the CBRN and Medical experts could verify common procedures of the CBRN casualties management and improve its seamless handling between the areas of responsibility.

In addition the Clean Care 2016, which was reiterated after five years, will serve as a pre-requisite in training of forces for the major NATO strategic exercises such as Trident serial.
