Marines assess member in a contaminated environment training scenario

A Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Marine with CBRN platoon, Headquarters Battalion, 3rd Marine Division lies on a table as fellow Marines remove his gear after passing out in the field within a contaminated environment as a simulated casualty during a CBRN training exercise at landing zone Westfield on May 13, 2014. Marines conducted assessment and consequence management training through several scenarios to sustain familiarity with safely conducting research and gathering samples in a contaminated environment. One scenario contained an aircraft leaking chemical agents while the other scenario included locating a chemical agent spill and rescuing multiple casualties in the field. Both scenarios utilized the Rapid Area Sensitive Sight and Reconnaissance robot to investigate the hazardous areas to search for and mitigate potentially harmful substances CBRN personnel may not be aware of.
