This multiservice publication is designed for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) responders who plan and conduct CBRN consequence management (CM) operations in domestic, foreign, or theater operational environments, to include military installations. Department of Defense (DOD) personnel responding to a CBRN incident may be responsible for CBRN CM and/or crisis planning and may be required to execute plans across the conflict spectrum. This publication provides a reference for planning, resourcing,and executing CBRN CM in support of domestic or foreign agencies responding to a CBRN incident. Specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) are included in the appendixes.
This manual incorporates the joint doctrine elements from Joint Publication (JP) 3-40, Joint Doctrine for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction; JP 3-41, Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and High-Yield Explosives Consequence Management; and JP 3-11, Joint Doctrine for Operations in Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Environments, for conducting CBRN CM (foreign and domestic), including planning, preparation, response, and recovery considerations. During operations, this publication is subordinate to currentJPs addressing this topic.
The purpose of this publication is to provide commanders, staffs, key agencies, and military members with a key reference for planning and conducting CBRN CM. It provides the tools for CBRN responders to effectively manage the consequences of a CBRN incident. It also may serve as a reference for development and refining of training and exercises, but shall not supersede Service policy.
This publication is designed for use at the tactical level, but has implications at the operational and strategic level for CBRN CM operations supporting strategic objectives.
