Nordic Society of Radiation Protection Conference (Helsinki)

10/Jun/2019

The Nordic Society for Radiation Protection is dedicated to the development and dissemination of knowledge and experience on protection against ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. This covers radiation protection for workers, patients being subjected to irradiation for diagnostics or therapeutic purposes and protection of the public in general. This work is mainly done through arranging general meetings (conferences) within the Nordic countries, where members can meet and exchange views and information.

TOXI-triage - DISPERSE exercise (Mikkeli, Finland)

22/May/2019

The second TOXI-triage field exercise, DISPERSE, took place on 22nd May in Mikkeli, Finland.

DISPERSE scenario simulated a chemical incident in a town centre. A van parked at the Market Square starts to release a dense plume of vapour that blows across the ground and through the stalls and cafe seating located around the square.
Some people in the square are immediately overcome by the vapour and many others complain of irritation of eyes, nose and throat. Others start to report chest pain and breathing difficulties. This was the starting point of the exercise.
Three critical segments were considered where TOXI‐triage concepts and technologies are envisaged to enhance response capabilities:
