A delegation from the Republic of Armenia is visiting Kansas to observe a state training exercise and receive instruction on responding to bio hazards.
The events are part of an ongoing exchange between Armenia and the Kansas National Guard through a program administered by the National Guard Bureau.
On Tuesday, the delegation was in Emporia to watch a bio hazards training exercise involving local first responders and the Kansas National Guard’s 73rd Civil Support Team.
The Armenians travel next Wednesday to the state’s Crisis City training center in Salina for classroom instruction on responding to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazards.
The visit has been coordinated by the National Agricultural Biosecurity Center at Kansas State University.
