In this image released by the Texas Military Forces, Texas' Adjutant General Brig. Gen. John F. Nichols, Col. William Hall, Joint Task Force 71 commander and Alice Rogers with Texas Department of State Health Services inspect emergency response equipment trailers in Fort Worth, Texas, Sunday, Feb. 6, 2011. The trailers belong to units with Texas CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives) Task Force, headquartered in Austin, Texas. The men and women deployed to North Texas as part of a joint training exercise headed by Joint Task Force 71, for a two-week Super Bowl 45 operation supporting civil authorities in the area. Sustaining key equipment in a state of constant readiness is just one of many elements of the task force's ability to provide immediate response when called upon by civilian authorities.
