The weeklong exercise was a key training event for the 172nd HR Co. and various other units within Joint Task Force Civil Support, a rapidly deployable force of more than 5,000 service members from across the country who are specially trained and equipped to provide life-saving assistance in the event of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear disasters in the U.S. During the exercise, the Soldiers had to decontaminate and medically treat 200 civilian role players who acted as survivors of a nuclear attack.
