    Exercise "Bogorodsk 2002"

    25-27 September 2002

    Exercise "Bogorodsk 2002", which was conducted from 25 to 27 September 2002 at the EMERCON Training Centre in Noginsk (Russian Federation), was the third field exercise to practice Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) procedures and Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Unit (EADRU) capabilities.

    The exercise was a Russian contribution to the Partnership Work Programme (PWP). While it was primarily conducted as a PWP Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) and Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Unit (EADRU) activity, it also involved the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA) and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

    Concurrent with the operational work in Noginsk, on 25 and 26 September, four half-day seminars were conducted dealing with Border Crossing Procedures, Command Control and Communication, Disaster Medical Management and Law Enforcement and Rescue Operations, all based on the scenario for the field exercise.

    The aim of Exercise "Bogorodsk 2002” was to practice EADRCC procedures and EADRU capabilities in order to improve chemical biological radiological (CBR) agents consequence management.

    The scenario for the field exercise was built upon a demanding terrorist initiated attack on a chemical production facility involving mass casualties, contamination, collapsed structures and evacuation and a request for international assistance, taking into account, as much as possible, the experiences and lessons learned by EAPC nations in this field.

    In addition to the Russian Federation, twelve other EAPC countries participated in the exercise: nine from the neighbouring area (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Finland, Moldova, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Ukraine), and three from outside the region (Austria, Iceland and Italy).

    Since one of the major exercise objectives was to promote regional cooperation, as neighbouring countries would normally be best placed to respond to real life disasters or emergencies, the objective was considered to be fully met.
