Science for Disaster Response Program

The Science for Disaster Response track provides intensive education and training in the principles involved in detecting, identifying, and safe handling of chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) agents and their precursors as they are related to weapons of mass destruction (WMD). This track responds to the national mandate to improve the educational level of first responders in the WMD community. The intended audience is the National Guard Bureau’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams (WMD-CST), other United States Government WMD and homeland security response elements, state and local civilian WMD and homeland security response elements, and related emergency planners. Additionally, this track prepares WMD first responders for employment in technical positions related to Homeland Security or graduate studies in CBRN defense.
