    The IIB as a guest at the disaster control exercise of the Lusatia control centre

    On Saturday, September 30, 2017, a disaster protection exercise took place at the Carl-Thiem Clinic in Cottbus. This was a so-called “mass casualty attack”, in which about 450 participants were involved in the rehearsal for the emergency. In the course of the security research carried out at the institute, the IIB was invited to observe the exercise.
