Frederick, Md. – A group of senior leaders responsible for carrying out national disaster responses was recently shown the latest capabilities for responding to chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) events. On November 30, personnel from the Joint Program Executive Office for CBRN Defense, along with the Air Force CBRN Defense Systems Branch and the Uniformed Services University’s 4DBio Program, demonstrated current and future CBRN defense capabilities to a senior leadership team comprised of representatives from the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, the National Security Council’s Office for Resilience and Response, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and additional domestic emergency response organizations. The intent of the demonstration was to showcase the capabilities and expertise that the Defense Department has to augment an “all-of-government” response to a domestic chemical or biological incident and catalyze the creation of the requirements that can help modernize and enhance current domestic response capabilities.
