U.S. Army Japan this week conducted Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Defense training, in collaboration with the Japan Ground Self Defense Force. The exercise builds readiness against a broad spectrum of contingencies as well as develops interoperability with Camp Zama’s bilateral partners.

The training was designed to evaluate U.S. Army Japan Soldiers and Japan Ground Defense Force members responses to CBRNE scenarios including decontamination of personnel and vehicles as well as real-life medical support to handle a wide variety of hazardous scenarios.

More than a hundred personnel from on and off the installation participated in the exercise, which aims to increase CBRNE coordination and communication efforts between the various units.
