FM 3-11-34 Multi-service Procedures for NBC Defense Operations for Fixed Sites (2000) is designed for commanders and personnel responsible for nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) defense planning at theater bases/base clusters.
These personnel may be responsible for deliberate and/or crisis planning and may be required to execute plans across the conflict spectrum.
This publication provides a multi-service reference for planning, resourcing, and executing the NBC defense of fixed sites, ports, and airfields. Specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) are included in its appendixes.
During operations, this publication is subordinate to current joint publications addressing this topic. While this document is focused on operations primarily outside the continental United States (OCONUS), it can be used to address acts of chemical, biological, and radiological terrorism against United States (US) force generation sites.
I shared FM 3-7 NBC Field Handbook last week, it was a more general document for the regular soldier, as such it is pretty basic, FM 3-11-34 Multi-service Procedures for NBC Defense Operations for Fixed Sites is more much technical as it is for specialists in the NBC field.
An interesting aspect of this manual is that it is a multi-service publication that has been prepared as a revision to Field Manual (FM) 3-4-1, Fixed Site Protection. Formerly a single-service manual, this revision has been coordinated and approved by its signatories to address multiservice NBC defense operations and responsibilities at military fixed sites.[pdf-embedder url=”https://www.tngun.com/wp-content/uploads/FM-3-11-34-Multiservice-Procedures-for-NBC-Defense-Operations-for-Fixed-Sites-2000.pdf” title=”FM 3-11-34 Multiservice Procedures for NBC Defense Operations for Fixed Sites (2000)”]
