Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
The use of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive (CBRNE) devices has the potential to cause mass casualties and high levels of destruction. When preparing for or responding to emergencies involving CBRNE agents, it is critical for medical personnel and other responders to have immediate access to the best available information and resources.
ASPR CBRNE Science is an innovative means to bringing experiential, evidence-basis, and science and medicine to preparedness and response to CBRNE incidents. CBRNE Science brings together experts that understand both the science and operations to provide leadership decision support, operational guidance, and emergency management support. CBRNE Science employs an incubator approach that utilizes small teams, working groups, and task groups on a day-to-day basis to collaboratively inform CBRNE response solutions and, as needed, actual response activities and leadership decisions.
This approach has led to the development of guidance and resources; better understanding of response capabilities; and enhanced domestic and global preparedness through education, information, and expert support. In response to an accidental or intentional CBRNE incident domestically or internationally, CBRNE Science provides coordinated strategic, technical, and operational leadership, advice, and guidance for all levels of the medical response regarding medical and public health impacts and interventions.

The nation’s health and response systems and communities will be prepared, responsive and resilient to limit the adverse health impacts of CBRNE emergencies.
