RFQ – Civil Support Team (WMD) Multi-Training Exercises

Survey team members Sgt. Kelley Trebesch and Spc. Patrick Moran, 82nd Civil Support Team (WMD), deploy AreaRAE Steel monitors which provide real-time wireless measurements for a range of potential threats at the exercise incident site in Sioux Falls, S.D., March 19, 2015. The 82nd CST primarily uses the AreaRAE to monitor Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) to see if the air could be a flammable environment, Carbon monoxide (CO), Oxygen (O2) to make sure the air can sustain life, and gamma radiation.

The National Guard is sourcing quotations for provision of services for multiple Civil Support Team exercises to be conducted between March and August at three different locations in South Dakota and Montana.

The exercises include components which meet the CST Commander’s training objectives and are designed to test the full readiness and response capabilities/operations of the CST. Training lanes include:

  • Radiological & Chemical Agents Lane Training
  • Biological Agents Lane Training
  • Chemical Agents Lane Training
  • CBRNE/All Hazards Relief in Place Operations

The exercise should involve one or more civilian first responder or emergency operations agencies in order to test the cooperation, communication, and coordination of a multi-agency response to a CBRNE, man-made, or natural disaster in which the CST would be involved.

Further details are available via Solicitation Number: W912MM-17-T-0008.
