MNBG-W CONDUCTS "FIRE PHOBIA" TRAINING
PEC/PEJA, Kosovo. Multinational Battle Group-West conducted an intense phase of "Fire
Phobia” training in close collaboration with their colleagues from Austria, Slovenia and
Moldova, at Camp "Slim Line”, in Pristina.
The combined contingents units also trained on riot control simulation techniques, based
on a number of challenging scenarios, such as aggression from a mob and protests,
including Molotov’s cocktails.
This training is the culmination of a series of intensive training exercise which has gotten
these troops to this high degree of readiness; that additionally has seen all the personnel
performing in a dynamic cycle of activity and training exercises that are both theoretical
and practical based, with the ultimate objective of achieving a Full Operational Capability
(FOC). This ultimately will allow these troops to professionally and confidently face
potential different civil disturbance scenarios should the need arise.
