As a health institution, we are aware that we must be ready at any time against Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear incidents that may occur. For this reason, it is of great importance that our teams keep their knowledge fresh for both large and small-scale incidents and exhibit error-free behavior as much as possible in real events. In our drills, which we prepare meticulously, we have the chance to identify our deficiencies and complete them with trainings."
