Video: Katy Laffan, Sinead Harvey, Martin Klingenboeck

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the IAEA’s Incident and Emergency Centre remains fully operational and ready to respond to nuclear and radiological emergencies. As the global focal point for radiation emergencies, the Centre’s around-the-clock alert system is always staffed and the training of IAEA responders and conduct of exercises is being done remotely. If a radiation emergency should occur, over 200 trained IAEA staff are available to provide technical and scientific assessments, assist countries and coordinate international emergency response efforts.
