The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health's (NIOSH) Office for Emergency Preparedness and Response, the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Division of Emergency Operations along with other agencies will assist in an educational emergency response scenario (ERS). The ERS will involve a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosives (CBRNE) event that would employ all levels of response appropriate under the National Response Plan (NRP).

A demonstration of resources and equipment at the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum from a first-responder perspective, demonstrating technology used to sample, detect, identify and mitigate a CBRNE event with selected personal protective equipment (PPE).

NIOSH and CDC are experienced in airport scenario exercises.
CDC Emergency Operations Center (EOC) personnel will address how the federal agency responds to disasters and how it would respond under the NRP to a major airport event. An overview of current program activities, monitoring equipment and response plans for major airports will be addressed along with a presentation of CDC EOC capabilities.

First-Responder Mobile Incident Command Post, expansion of the Incident Command System (ICS) and its technical reference in the development of the Incident Action Plan (IAP) will be addressed during the ERS table-top exercise at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel.
