How Do You Treat A Nerve Agent Attack?

How Do You Treat A Nerve Agent Attack?

Following the nerve agent incident in Salisbury earlier this week, we have been contacted by several customers for advice on what precautions first responders should take when attending such CBRN type incidents.

Fortunately these types of incidents are extremely rare in the UK and we are by no means an expert on such matters but we've put together some points which we hope you will find useful and stimulate further discussion.

The first big problem I see is how will you even know you are going to a potential CBRN incident? We don't know the full details yet of the Sergei Skripal case in Salisbury but you can imagine the initial 999 call being about someone 'feeling unwell' and if they're in a public place such as a shopping centre then the local security guards, staff, first responders and the emergency services would deal with it as a routine job unless there was an intel to the contrary. 

The main five nerve agents are Tabun, which is also known as GA and is the easiest to make, and then there is Sarin, Soman, GF and VX. 

We are pulling together information from various experts such as NARU and NHS England and will publish some further guidance over the coming days.

Keep checking out our SP NEWS page where we regulary publish articles relevant to lots of our customers.
