CBRNE is the international abbreviation for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive substances. CBRNE describes activities concerning dangerous and harmful substances of either biological, chemical, radioactive, nuclear or explosive character. CBRNE events can be caused by accidents, antagonistic events, or other factors. While these events are rare, they are often very serious, which is why constant preparedness is necessary.
