Biopreparedness courses and external support

CBB’s courses in biological preparedness are normally offered as either an integrated part of a larger training course, or the course is arranged individually depending on the target group. Typically, the courses consist of lectures on biological threats and the biological preparedness organisation in Denmark, occasionally supplemented with a two-hour table-top exercise in which a bioterrorism scenario is analysed and discussed.

Furthermore, the Centre arranges practical training in incident response in an area where the presence of a dangerous biological agent is suspected, whether it is an intentional release of biological warfare agents or caused by an accidental release. Some exercises take place in collaboration with the Danish Emergency Management Agency and are of one day's duration. Exercise participants are for example, besides CBB, the Danish Emergency Management Agency and the local emergency staff and police. The target groups for these activities are primarily health professionals, decision makers and on-site commanders.

The Centre also customises presentations to target specific groups. In addition to these activities, CBB also offers external support in relation to bio-risk identification, emergency planning concerning biological incidents, briefings etc.

Please contact CBB for more information regarding courses in biopreparedness.
