NATO Allies have practised responding to biochemical threats during the multinational CBRN Exercise YELLOW CROSS 20 in Czechia.
Exercise YELLOW CROSS 20, hosted by Czechia, helped NATO Allies practise responding to Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear (CBRN) threats.
Held from 12-20 October near Liberec in Czechia (Czech Republic), the exercise gathered six NATO Allies – Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Poland, Slovenia and Spain – to train in detecting and responding to CBRN attacks, including the decontamination of Allied soldiers and materiel. During the exercise, soldiers undertook precautions against COVID-19 by social distancing and wearing masks.
