  2. Identification and prioritization of SOP procedures critical for the operation of the CBRN Emergency Control Centre.
  3. Assistance in the setting up of table top exercises for a simulated CBRN incident.
  4. Discussion and advice on how to prepare for a live field exercise for a simulated CBRN incident.
  5. Assistance in the modelling of prevailing winds from a leak from the Dimonah Nuclear Reactor and hence the radius of evacuation in Lebanon.
