Diverse Environments and Situations
When conducting operations, a CST may operate in very diverse environments or in unique situations that will impact mission execution. This appendix will briefly present some of these situations and environments, along with some of the unique challenges they present. Further discussion and guidance on this subject can be found in various CBRNE-related doctrinal manuals, to include FMs 3-4, 3-5, and 3-19.
Q-1. CSTs will operate in diverse (special) environments that range from various climatic zones to various geographical locations (such as maritime, federal or military installations). These special environments may necessitate additional mission analysis to determine the impact of that environment on CST mission operations and what countermeasures will be used to assure effective and safe mission execution.
Q-2. Desert and subtropical. Selected operational considerations that could impact working in a desert environment are—
Q-3. Urban. Selected operational considerations that could affect working in an urban environment are—
Q-4. Cold. Selected operational considerations that could affect working in a cold-weather environment are—
Q-5. Maritime. Selected operational considerations that could affect working in a Maritime environment are—
Q-6. Sensitive locations. Jurisdictional and interoperability considerations could affect working in sensitive locations. Sensitive locations could include—
Q-7. Military or federal property. Selected considerations that could affect working on military or federal property are—
Q-8. High altitude. Selected considerations that could affect when working in a high-altitude environment are—
Q-9. Remote locations. Selected considerations that could affect working in a remote location are—
Q-10. CSTs may operate in special situations that range from responding to high-priority national events (using mission analysis to identify the requirement) to task-organizing CST assets to meet the mission requirements.
Q-11. High-priority national events. Selected considerations to be considered when working in support of situations such as national events are—
Q-12. Task-organizing CST assets. Selected considerations to be considered when task-organizing CST element operations are—
