POSTED:  September 25, 2023

In June 2023, the Homeland Defense and Security Information Analysis center (HDIAC) convened a TTX in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, which posited a mixed-hazardous waste “dirty bomb” blanketing the nearby federal reservation and its research facilities in a harmful chemical plume.  With more than 50 participants in attendance representing 20+ city, state, federal, civilian, and military organizations, the TTX grappled with critical questions of emergency response planning, cross-jurisdiction mutual aid, how best to detect and report on hazards, and triaged personal protective equipment use.

This AAR discusses the motivation behind the chosen scenario and presents lessons learned from the exercise. Download the report below.
