NRC Holds Seminar on High Visibility Events

TERRORISM TABLETOP

The NRC Ad Hoc Working Group on the Terrorist Threat to the Euro-Atlantic Area and the NRC Civil Emergency Planning and Protection Working Group held a joint seminar on hosting High Visibility Events on 28 November. This is an area of considerable interest for NRC nations, as many of them have either hosted or are preparing to host High Visibility Events, including the Olympics and the football World Cup. Sufficient planning of how to prepare for potential terrorist threats and put into place appropriate civil emergency measures are key requirements for a host nation.

Several national experts participated in the NRC seminar, during which participants exchanged information on their experience supporting past High Visibility Events such as Euro 2012, as well as preparations for upcoming events.
