CBRN Resilience 2010 – 29 - 30 June 2010, CCT Smithfield, London, UK

Published:  29 March, 2010

A February 2010 report by Visiongain valued sales in the global CBRN defence market at a staggering $7.9 billion for 2009 and analysts anticipate that this figure will only grow as the technology available to would-be terrorists expands.

It could be argued that the 2010 Olympics make the UK more prone to CBRN attack and so investment in CBRN is key for national security for the UK in this time.

On speaking to CBRNe, Chief Superintendent Andrew Sigsworth, Head of the UK’s Police National CBRN Centre, commented “As it stands I see the Olympics as a driver likely to encourage commitment, not as a problem.” He went on to say “The commitment of forces across the UK to CBRN is frankly commendable. We have seen and continue to see increases in numbers of trained responders at all levels and I am extremely encouraged by the current trend.”

The London Olympics highlight that the treat of attack is constant and our forces should always be prepared, therefore it is imperative that knowledge, new ideas and communication methods are shared to develop the best strategies to respond to a CBRN incident.

The 2010 CBRN Resilience Conference aims to gather professionals in the industry from emergency services and the military to collectively demonstrate these best practices on how to manage and decontaminate a CBRN incident.

A number of confirmed speakers are attending including:

  • Sir Ken Knight, Chief Fire and Rescue Advisor (Department of Communities and Local Government
  • Felicity Oswald, CBRN Lead, Civil Contingencies Secretariat
