Joint training exercises with the 81st CST help civilian first responders understand the CST's capabilities and the support they can provide in domestic emergency response. Training together also helps civilian first responders learn how to maximize and coordinate this support. It establishes relationships between the agency and 81st CST which in turn improves cooperation. The simulated scenario focused on a suspicious vehicle emitting radiation and unknown substances.
