Members of Joint Task Force Civil Support board a U.S. Coast Guard vessel to navigate down the Detroit River while attending the 2018 DoD Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA)/Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Dense Urban Terrain Training Tactical Exercise Without Troops exercise held August 21-23 in Detroit Michigan. The task force members were among the 150 participants from more than 50 organizations of the interagency, to include local, state, federal and international partners. They gathered to increase their readiness for the CBRN mission with a focus on operating in a dense urban environment. Detroit is an inland seaport and handles traffic from all over the world by way of various connecting waterways and so afforded the training attendees with the opportunity to consider the challenges of responding to a DSCA event by water. The training was held by the 46th Military Police Command, Michigan Army National Guard, Command and Control CBRN Response Element – Bravo and also included training within the city landscape.
