11th WMD Civil Support Team

The 11th WMD-CST is to be able to deploy rapidly, and assist local first responders in determining the nature of an attack, provide medical and technical advice, and pave the way for the identification and arrival of follow-on state and federal military response assets.

The team consists of 22 highly skilled, full-time members of the National Guard.

The mission of the unit is to assess a suspected nuclear, biological, chemical or radiological event in support of the local incident commander, advise civilian responders regarding appropriate courses of action; and facilitate requests for assistance to expedite arrival of additional state and federal assets to help save lives, prevent human suffering and mitigate significant property damage.
