          The Boone County Fire Protection District (Columbia, Missouri) houses one of 27 federally-funded and specially trained rescue teams located around the United States.  These Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) teams are composed of highly trained individuals, canines, and special equipment that can assist a jurisdiction when responding to a terrorist incident. US&R responsibilities include locating, extricating, and providing on-site medical treatment to victims trapped in collapsed structures.


          The US&R team in Columbia (Missouri Task Force 1) can be activated through fire mutual aid, SEMA, or by federal activation.  However, since this team is housed in Missouri, it will only be activated either by fire mutual aid or the state.  If this unit is activated federally, it will most likely be sent elsewhere in the country.


          WMD Civil Support Team*

Formerly known as the RAID Team and also known as the 7th Military Support Detachment (MSD).  This highly trained team is one of several located around the country and available to assist state and local officials in the event of a terrorist incident involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

Any senior local public safety official can request the WMD Civil Support Team by contacting SEMA.


          Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT)*

Some of the federal DMATs have been given special chemical/biological capabilities. The closest team for Missouri is located in St. Louis, Missouri.

This team can be activated at SEMAs request.


          Strategic National Stockpile*

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has established this program which maintains a national WMD drug and medical equipment cache.

This program can be activated at SEMAs request also.

*Contact for these teams is made through SEMA
