Avoiding Contamination from Chem/Bio/Nuke Weapons
Tactics, techniques and procedures that military forces should use to avoid contamination from an attack involving chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) weapons are set forth in a recent military manual (large pdf).
“The possibility that an adversary will use CBRN weapons against the United States and its allies continues to increase daily,” the manual states.
“If these weapons are used, our forces must be ready to implement the principles of CBRN defense [including] contamination avoidance, protection, and decontamination.”
“Executed at all levels and coupled with an effective retaliatory response, these fundamentals will increase the likelihood of a US victory.”
