Description
A team composed of maritime public safety personnel from various backgrounds that detects radiological and nuclear materials.
Resource Category
Prevention
Primary Core Capability
Screening, Search, and Detection
Secondary Core Capability
 
Resource Kind
Team with personnel and equipment components
Overall Function
The team: 1. Uses Preventive Radiological Nuclear Detection (PRND) tools and training to detect nuclear and radiological material out of regulatory control in the maritime environment 2. Supports Primary Screening, Secondary Inspection, and Wide Area Search 3. Is not capable of handling interdiction and other law enforcement PRND missions unless the team has assigned, sworn law enforcement personnel
Composition and Ordering Specifications
1. Discuss logistics for deploying this team, such as working conditions, length of deployment, security, lodging, transportation, and meals, prior to deployment 2. The requestor may request the boat with or without a boat operator, if requested without a boat operator, the requestor should provide one 3. Teams are scalable by type, based upon the needs of the event 4. Requestor should specify if law enforcement capabilities are necessary 5. Requestor may order additional PRND Team Operators, but should ensure a span of control consistent with the Incident Command System (ICS)
