Like Alaska's own 103rd CST (WMD), the California team is composed of Army and Air Force National Guardsmen, trained in NBC and HAZMAT identification, assessment, and sampling. Their primary mission is to provide first responder support to civil authorities in matters of NBC, HAZMAT, and other major incidents. The week's training included a joint operations and casualty evacuation, suspected HAZMAT lab clearing, NBC training and weapons familiarization.
