WHAT DOES CBRN MEAN IN ENGLISH?

CBRN

CBRN defense

Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense is protective measures taken in situations in which any of these four hazards are present. To account for improvised devices, the term CBRNe is used. CBRN defense consists of CBRN passive protection, contamination avoidance and CBRN mitigation. CBRN weapons or agents are often referred to as weapons of mass destruction. However, this is not entirely correct. Although CBRNe agents often cause mass destruction, this is not necessarily the case. Terrorist use of CBRNe agents may cause a limited number of casualties, but a large terrorizing and disruption of society. Terrorist use of CBRNe agents, intended to cause terror instead of mass casualties, is therefore often referred to as weapons of mass disruption. A CBRN incident differs from a hazardous material incident in both effect scope and in intent. CBRN incidents are responded to under the assumption that they are deliberate, malicious acts with the intention to kill, sicken, and/or disrupt society. Evidence preservation and perpetrator apprehension are of greater concern with CBRN incidents than with HAZMAT incidents.
