Preparing for America's worst day
U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers, with the 414th Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Company, based in Orangeburg, S.C., working together with the 409th Area Support Medical Company, based in Madison, Wisconsin, treat a patient in a Mass Casualty Decontamination line during the Army Reserve’s Guardian Response 18 exercise, April 11, 2018. More than 4,500 Soldiers from across the country participated in GR18, a multi-component training exercise to validate U.S. Army units’ ability to support the Defense Support of Civil Authorities in the event of a CBRN catastrophe. The training audience brought a range of life-saving capabilities such as medical response, decontamination, technical rescue, patient evacuation, communications and logistics support to move people, equipment and supplies by land and air.
