CBRN Consequence Management Response Force

Definition/Scope: (FM 4-02.7) The Department odfDefense (DOD) created the CBRN consequence management response force (CCMRF), which includes response, medical, and support units that could respond within one to three days to a catastrophic event. The CCMRF is a ready reaction force organized into three task forces comprised largely of active units that total approximately 3,600 troops. This force would report to JTF-CS during an actual event. The units that comprise the CCMRF are not focused exclusively on civil support and can be deployed overseas in support of other requirements. As a result, the units that comprise the CCMRFs are constantly changing. The CCMRF is a Title X task force comprised of both Active and Reserve Component capabilities. The CCMRF?s primary role when responding to a CBRNE event is to augment the consequence management efforts of the first responders. The CCMRF- One (Active Component) units will be assigned to USNORTHCOM on October 1, 2010. The CCMRF-Two (Reserve Components) will be placed on a prepare to deploy order while assigned to USNORTHCOM for a minimum of 24 months from October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2011. Each CCMRF will be composed of three functional task forces - Task Force Operations, Task Force Medical and Task Force Aviation - that have their own individual operational focus and set of mission skills. Their capabilities include search and rescue, decontamination, medical, aviation, communications and logistical support.
