(Corvallis, Ore.) - The Oregon National Guard's 102nd Civil Support Team is scheduled to participate in an interagency training exercise with first responders in Corvallis, Ore., Sept. 12-13.

The Resilient Response '13 exercise includes multiple agencies ranging from the local and municipal level up through the federal government. The exercise will test the ability of an inter-agency coalition to respond to man-made disasters, and to coordinate response protocols.

The exercise will be held primarily at Oregon State University's Reser Stadium.

The Oregon National Guard's 102nd Civil Support Team, which was formed in late 1999, and received its federal recognition in March 2004, provides assistance to local on-scene commanders in the event of a natural or manmade chemical, biological, radiological, or weapons of mass-destruction incident.

The unit is based in Salem, Ore., and is comprised of qualified and highly-trained citizen-Soldiers and citizen-Airmen.
