Event Description

Preventive Radiological/Nuclear Detection Backpack Operations for the Primary Screener (PER 246)

This instructor-led is designed to train the Preventive Radiological/Nuclear Detection (PRND) mission using portable radiation detection systems (backpacks with a higher level of sensitivity than personal radiation detectors) to perform a preliminary radiological assessment. Responders operate backpacks to detect radiation, verify the radiation alarm, localize the source of radiation, measure the radiation level, and assess the threat status of the situation. Participants employ the backpacks to help adjudicate potential threats involving people, vehicles, packages, and facilities. Additional information regarding PRND operations in maritime environments is available and included as needed.
