The aim of this course is to provide, radiation protection specialists, first responders, law enforcement, and emergency managers with practical information to effectively respond to radiological incidents and accidents. The course provides instruction through briefings, equipment demonstrations and field exercises employing a wide variety of radiation detection instrumentation, radiation sources, and personal protective equipment.
The course covers response methods to a variety of nuclear and radiological incidents, including search, response to a portal alarm, consequence management in the event of a release of radiological material, and addresses events ranging from a small, localized release to a larger incident such as a radiological dispersal device. At the conclusion, students will understand the principles needed to organize and conduct a radiological emergency response, have practical experience applying those principles in realistic scenarios and understand how to protect themselves and the public from contamination.
