The U.S. National Response Team (NRT) provides technical assistance, resources and coordination on preparedness, planning, response and recovery activities for emergencies involving hazardous substances, pollutants and contaminants, oil, and weapons of mass destruction in natural and technological disasters and other environmental incidents of national significance.
There are 13 Regional Response Teams (RRTs), one for each of ten federal regions, plus one for Alaska, one for the Caribbean, and one for the Pacific Basin. Each RRT maintains a Regional Contingency Plan (RCP) and has state, as well as federal government, representation.
The 2020 NRT-RRT Co-Chairs Meeting is April 21-23, 2020, in Seattle, WA. Additional information (e.g., meeting registration, hotel reservations, and draft agenda) are forthcoming. The event is for NRT and RRT representatives only.
