Police and fire officers from the Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic exercised dangerous radiological source tracking in the by-urban area of Malacky. The two-day exercise in Slovakia as part of the @TERRIFFIC_EU

The threat to society posed by so-called dirty bombs is increasing. A dirty bomb, or radiological dispersal device (RDD), is a speculative radiological weapon that combines radioactive material with conventional explosives.

The TERRIFFIC project brings together 10 European organisations, working together to deliver an important step-change in the effectiveness of first responders during the first hours of a Radiological, Nuclear, explosive (RNe) incident. This will lead to reduced response times, fewer health and safety risks for the response teams, and less human intervention in the operation due to a higher number of automated processes and extended mobile detection capabilities.
