In collaboration with the US DOE Office of Radiological Security, WINS held a follow-up workshop to a Silent Thunder table-top exercise (TTX) that was held in Baltimore, Maryland, in January 2018. WINS' workshop, titled "Responding to Security Incidents Involving Radioactive Sources," was held at the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards, Baltimore, on 16 April 2018. The workshop encouraged participants to continue building relationships, enhance current interoperability between various organisations, and further identify and discuss best practices that enhance the resilience of radiological security arrangements against evolving threats.
This interactive, professionally moderated event gave participants the opportunity to identify and address the potentially complex issues (including command, control and communications) that can arise when responding to a radiological security incident. The workshop helped participants:
The event was limited to 45 participants representing managers and specialists from the emergency response communities, as well as regulators, government departments and others who wanted to gain a specialised understanding of the issues and best practices. It was of major assistance to organisations that are planning to enhance their emergency management systems.
