1 min read

department of defenseThe Defense Department‘s National Guard bureau has determined that 10 Homeland Response Force units are mission-ready for HRF operations when called upon.

The Government Accountability Office said in a post released Tuesday the National Guard team performed an evaluation of necessary tasks and actions as well as DoD’s Defense Readiness Reporting System as a primary measure of readiness status and HRF capacity.

GAO said DoD has made progress in incorporating the HRF into the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, or Nuclear Response Enterprise through updates on plans, guidance and exercises.

HRF Commanders told GAO that the additional personnel can help mitigate personnel loss through turnover and other deployment factors including medical and personal factors.
