JMRC Enlarges CBRN Training Capability The Joint Multinational Readiness Center (JMRC), Hohenfels, Germany, is addressing shortfalls in Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) attack readiness. While typically given only minor attention, training on CBRN threats now has a reinvigorated program and place in rotational training. As a countermeasure to these threats, JMRC is developing replicated mock-chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear training sites to facilitate in-depth training. The 20th CBRNE Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, will partner with JMRC in an advisory role and assist in building up the large scale assets. "Nuclear and chemical plants are a significant part of the European infrastructure," said Maj. Joseph E. Myers, JMRC's Mustang Team CBRN observer, coach, trainer. In fact, so significant, there is a need to recognize labs and plants as a common part of the territory. "Earmarking real estate within several of the training area's MOUT sites (military operations on urban terrain), JMRC is building sites that replicate various conditions common to Europe," said Myers. These fixed-site and mobile labs range from a site dedicated to medium scale chemical production of ammonia or chlorine, a home-made explosives (HME) lab, a stationary college chemistry lab, a radiological laboratory, a nuclear power plant and labs producing traditional chemical warfare agents. With the addition of the CBRN capabilities, JMRC can extend invitations to special units and teams. JMRC will gain the ability to accommodate Biological Integrated Detection Teams, Stryker NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) Reconnaissance Platoons, Technical Escort Battalions, and Special Forces Units.
