Ionising radiation Federal Office for Radiation Protection and Federal Police measure environmental radioactivity in the rural districts of Schwandorf and Cham

In the rural districts of Schwandorf and Cham, one helicopter of the Federal Police (BPOL) and twelve measuring vehicles of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) will be on their way on 8 and 9 July 2014. In a joint exercise they will measure the environmental radioactivity.

Ionising radiation Helicopter exercise: Federal Office for Radiation Protection and German Federal Police Air Service measure radioactivity from the air

From 8 to 10 October 2013, the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) and the German Federal Police Air Service (BPOLFLD) will train environmental radioactivity measurements from a helicopter in a joint exercise in Rhineland Palatinate, Hesse and Saarland. The exercise is a precautionary measure: With such measures, the Federal Office for Radiation Protection and the German Federal Police Air Service can determine the distribution of radioactive material in the environment quickly and over large areas in case of emergency. That may become necessary, for example, if radioactive material is released in case of an accident in a nuclear power plant.

Electromagnetic fields Environment and children's health – growing up healthier

Polluted air in schools may directly affect children's health. At the start of the school year, after school buildings have been remediated or renovated, classrooms may be chemically polluted. As in schools and day-care facilities many persons stay in tight spaces, the concentration of carbon diox-ide may rise quickly, too. Therefore, airing is of the essence.

Ionising radiation Helicopter exercise: Detection of airborne radiation by Federal Office for Radiation Protection and Federal Police

Within the scope of a joint exercise in Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony, the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) and the Federal Police (BPOL) are going to practise the helicopter-launched detection of environmental radioactivity from 24 to 28 September 2012. The exercise is a precautionary measure: Based on this detection procedure, BfS and BPOL will be able to assess the distribution of radioactive substances in the environment rapidly and over a wide area, if necessary. This could, for example, be required in the case of an accident in a nuclear power plant (NPP) associated with releases of radioactive substances.
