VIRE is a vehicle for first aid teams (now internationally known as the FIRST RESPONDER/HAZMAT TEAMS).
Il VIRE was designed to promptly recognize CBRN aggressive arising from toxic substances resulting from natural disasters, industrial disasters, accidents or terrorist acts.
Il VIRE performs the initial detection and identification, to provide sufficiently specific information quickly and allow the immediate reaction of other departments to mitigate the effects resulting from CBRN events.
The main features of VIRE are as follows:
VIRE is able to:
Emergency Rapid Identification Vehicle for the detection and the identification of CBRN aggressive agents and TICs.
Provisional Identification Level Capability.
The VIRE CBRN/PR-ID carries out the initial detection and identification, rapidly supplying sufficiently precise information allowing immediate reaction from other Units capable of mitigating results of a CBRN event.
Today, there is a steady increase in the Nations to be equipped with these vehicles, due to this type of employment considering the type of threats to be counteracted.
The VIRE CBRN/PR-ID has the main characteristics as follows: – Highly manoeuvrable, self contained and flexible when employed. – Visibly “low-key”. The vehicle is not conspicuous unlike other vehicles of the Law Enforcement. – It is supplied with portable instruments that can immediately detect and identify CBRN threats deriving from toxic substances resulting from natural disasters, industrial disasters, road accidents or terrorist attacks. – The VIRE CBRN/PR-ID gives a precious first response for successive phases of emergency management.
However the primary mission of the VIRE CBRN/PR-ID, is not focused on operating in contaminated zones, in case of danger, it can avert with safety (for the operators) from a contaminated zone, thanks for the COLPRO system installed in the driver’s cabin.
