LIBEREC, Czech Republic - Members of Headquarters Allied Rapid Reaction Corps recently participated in Exercise YELLOW CROSS 2017 for one week in May, bringing together units that specialise in Chemical, Biological, Radioactive and Nuclear defence from four NATO partner countries in the Czech Republic.
Practicing their skills in the context of a fictional environment, NATO service members from the UK, Czech Republic, Poland and Canada had a chance to deal with the threat that CBRN weapons pose, as well as the hazards from toxic industrial materials that may be encountered on cluttered and congested battlefields. Members of the ARRC acted as the higher command in the simulated crisis exercise scenario.
This exercise ensures that the ARRC maintains its readiness as the NATO Response Force Land Component Command as well as continuing to build relationships with partner nations in support of the Alliance.
