FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas – U. S. Army North, U. S. Northern Command’s Joint Force Land Component Command, will host more than 3,500 military and civilian personnel from around the country to take part in a Field Training Exercise simulating a terrorist attack in the United States.

The exercise, named Vibrant Response, takes place July 10-24 at Camp Atterbury, Ind., and surrounding areas.

The training will include urban and aerial search and rescue missions, simulated decontamination operations, airlift, medical training and many other events with excellent still photo or video opportunities.

Joint Task Force 51, based at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, and members of the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and High-yield Explosive (CBRNE) Consequence Management Response Force (CCMRF) 10.2 will work with other federal, state, and local emergency responders during the exercise.

The CCMRF 10.2 is organized into three task forces: Task Force Operations, Task Force Aviation and Task Force Medical. Their capabilities include CBRNE technical rescue, decontamination, aviation, medical, logistics and other functions.

Army North deploys JTF-51 when directed by the Commander of U.S. Northern Command to command and control federal military forces providing support to civil authorities in order to save lives, prevent further injury and provide temporary critical support.
