DAVID PUGLIESE, OTTAWA CITIZEN - July 9, 2018


Exercise PRECISE RESPONSE 2018 started Monday at Canadian Forces Base Suffield in Alberta. The annual NATO training exercise provides the Canadian military, along with participants from various NATO allies and partner Nations, the opportunity to participate in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defence training in a multinational environment, according to the Department of National Defence.

The exercise, which will run until July 27, is hosted by Defence Research and Development Canada.

The Canadian Army’s contribution to the exercise will include 34 Canadian soldiers from 1 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group, based out of Edmonton. The Canadian contingent will provide various command and control capabilities for their task, and form two decontamination elements.
