Members of the 176th WIng engaged in Expeditionary Skills Refresher training here June 4, 2016, which included self-aid and buddy care, CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield environment) training, rules of engagement and communication with the local media.

"Self-aid and buddy care is to save life, limb and eyesight," said Capt. Amy Johnson, one of the 176th Wing's SABC advisors. "Every second, every minute counts in situations like that."

Attendees took the day to complete the courses split between two locations to accommodate different interactive needs of the training.

"CBRNE increases the ability to survive in a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield environment" said Senior Master Sgt. John Kershaw, the 176th Wing's CBRNE expert. Engaging participants in active training "captures their attention, and you get more out of it."
