        Understanding the threat posed by nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC-Risk) threats is critical to national security and emergency preparedness. These hazards pose significant risks due to the potential for mass casualties, widespread destruction, and long-lasting environmental impacts.

        Nuclear hazards include nuclear weapons, reactor accidents, and radiological dispersion devices, which can cause catastrophic explosions, radiation exposure, and contamination.

        Biological hazards arise from the intentional release of harmful bacteria, viruses or toxins, leading to widespread illness, death and social disruption.
