Task Force Command has been assumed by the 110th Joint Chemical, Biological Detachment.
The 110th Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Battalion (Technical Escort) has acquired leadership of Defense CBRN Response Force Task Force 2. Iron Dragons from Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington combat CBRN threats during military and domestic missions. Exercise Guardian Response was conducted by seven U.S. Army sites in preparation for deployment in the DCRF. Nationwide Army Reserve observers, controllers, and instructors aided U.S. forces.
In reviewing DCRF units, Army North and Joint Task Force-Civil collaborate. The 110th CBRN Battalion successfully verified its task force headquarters, mass casualty decontamination, urban search and rescue, and hazardous material reconnaissance and surveillance teams. Every battalion task force was validated for the first time in this exercise for the first time in over a decade, according to the incident commander and exercise leader.
