CBRNe World Preparing for the non-conventional threat
CBRNe World magazine, published bi-monthly by Falcon Communications Ltd, serves the information needs of professionals around the world charged with planning for or responding to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosives (CBRNe) threat or incident.
Spanning the divide of operational and scientific, it brings together opinion formers from the world of civil response, military leaders, academia, government agencies, research labs and industry. Combining the already merging fields of CBRN and explosives together in one magazine, editorial content is a combination of qualitative and researched news, interviews, articles, surveys and regular columns.

Zoe worked for the NHS for 16 years, 12 of which were spent in a London mortuary, ending up as Mortuary Manager. She developed a love for all things CBRN after assisting with post mortem examinations on Individual Chemical Exposure (ICE) cases in 2009. Experience from working on Hydrogen Cyanide and Hydrogen Sulphide (as well as the odd ‘unknown chemical’) saw her spend time working with the Metropolitan Police and NHS HART on these cases, which made for a great educational experience! This developed her interest not only in the chemicals she was dealing with but also the different types of PPE and DIM and how they worked. A long-time fan of the magazine she now works with the CBRNe World Team as their Marketing Communications manager.
