Federal Radiological Response Teams KL Groves*, Retired Navy
Abstract: This presentation reviews Federally-funded radiological response teams. These include state teams, National Guard WMD Civil Support Teams (in every U.S. state and territory), and Teams from the Federal agencies: DoD, DOE, EPA, CDC and VA. While all emergencies are local; a number of state and Federal agencies are available to help with radiological/nuclear incidents in a timely manner. Except in major incidents, the responding agencies report to and work for the local Incident Commander.
