RADEX 2019 is an international exercise related to rescue operations in radiological hazardous areas and with risk for radioactive contamination at sea in the Arctic.
RADEX 2019 will be organized as a table top exercise, which will cover a maritime radiological/ nuclear event including search and rescue (SAR) operations in radiologically hazardous areas, thus calling upon coordinated actions from several response organizations. During the exercise, the participants will discuss, exchange experiences and identify challenges related to SAR operations in radiologically hazardous areas in the Arctic. The main goal of the exercise is to identify possible challenges and to further improve national and international emergency preparedness and response to such scenarios.
The RADEX 2019 TTX will be held in Bodø, Norway on 3rd of June 2019
