NBC Warning and Reporting System; Graphic Training Aid, GTS3-6-3

W: U. S. Department of the Army, 1985. Supersedes GTA 3-6-2, June 1975. Ephemera. Single sheet, printed on both sides, 10 inches by 12 inches. Folded and re-folded so that there are 16 panels, eight on each side. Two panels are for notes and is almost completely blank space. Illustrations. Pencil erasure residue on title panel. The primary means of warning units of an actual or predicted CB hazard is the NBC Warning and Reporting system (NBCWRS). It is a key in limiting the effects of attacks. The NBCWRS allows units to determine required protective measures and plan operations. Units take action depending on the mission and type of hazard present. Affected units alter plans to avoid the hazard. The units can upgrade protective measures and occupy or cross the hazard area. The NBCWRS consists of six reports. Each is standardized. The six standard reports are— NBC 1-Initial report, used for passing basic data compiled at unit level. NBC 2-Report used for passing evaluated data. NBC 3-Report used for immediate warning of predicted contamination and hazard areas. NBC 4-Report used for passing monitoring and survey results. NBC 5-Report used for passing information on areas of actual contamination. NBC 6-Report used for passing detailed information on chemical or biological attacks. The reports use standard formats. The warning and reporting system is based on a code letter system. NBC has been updated to be described as Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense (CBRN defense or CBRNE defense) is protective measures taken in situations in which chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear warfare (including terrorism) hazards may be present. CBRN defense consists of CBRN passive protection, contamination avoidance and CBRN mitigation. A CBRN incident differs from a hazardous material incident in both scope (i.e., CBRN can be a mass casualty situation) and intent. CBRN incidents are responded to under the assumption that they are intentional and malicious; evidence preservation and perpetrator apprehension are of greater concern than with HAZMAT incidents. This ephemeral training aid was distributed to US Army Training and Audio-visual Support Centers (TASC). Distribution was restricted because it contained technical or operational information that was for official government use only. Distribution was limited to US government agencies. Request for release outside the US government needed to be made to HQ TRADOC, Fort Monroe, Virginia. Due to its age and advances in technical and operational information, it is understood that this distribution restriction no longer applies. Condition: Good.
