Slovenian medivac helicopter, radiological lab in NATO Response Force


Both capabilities are being put on standby between 1 January and 31 December with a response time of five days from deployment, according to a press release from the Slovenian Armed Forces.

The radiological laboratory will join the Multinational Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Defence Battalion in Poland, while the medivac helicopter will be under NATO air component command in Italy.

The formation of temporary response capabilities is a consequence of the implementation of the Readiness Action Plan adopted at the NATO 2014 summit in Wales to ensure the alliance is ready to respond swiftly and firmly to new security challenges.

This year Slovenia is thus providing announced capabilities for immediate response force in the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force, the release reads.
