Future of Decontamination in 5-10 Years (decon tech,)
Virtual workshop looking at the future of decontamination, how do we keep pace with those prepared to use chemicals as weapons
There were a myriad of lessons from Op. Morlock, the Salisbury poisoning case, that had never been identified in previous incidents/exercises? What TTPs need to be captured and turned into training and requirements? As more exotic chemicals start to appear in attacks, and the potential for even more in the future is decontamination keeping pace with it? Are we seeing broad, highly effective solutions that are light and have no damaging effect on the environment? If not, when?!
Bringing together a broad range of speakers, from research organisations, as well as responders this will attempt to look out 5-10 years at what might be available and how responder organisations need to posture themselves to take advantage of it.
Following the presentations there will be question and answer session where ideas can be shared and new concepts and technology discussed.
Details of programme and speakers will be updated shortly
