Within the framework of the first joint project between the United Nations Counter Terrorism Centre (UNCCT) and NATO’s Defence Policy and Planning Division a training for Jordanian first responders was organized by the JCBRN Defence COE.
The UNCCT/NATO project on Enhancing Capabilities to Prepare for and Respond to a CBRN Terrorist Attack in Jordan, delivered this five-day training for 20 Jordanian officials using the NATO’s International CBRN Training Curriculum for First Responders. The training covered aspects such as operational implications between civil-military interaction, preparedness, detection, response, decontamination and security context. It also included two days of simulation response exercises to chemical and radiological incidents, conducted at the Fire Protection and Training Centre Brno.
The Jordanian first responders attending the training welcomed this theoretical and practical course that will contribute to prevent a potential CBRN attack or incident and enhance their interoperability in response to CBRN incidents.
