Radiological Emergency Management System (REMS)
REMS is a network of gamma radiation sensors that provides real-time city-wide data that can be used for response and recovery in case of a radiological or nuclear event. Data transmitted by the sensors allows responders and emergency managers to rapidly assess potential radiation exposure in affected areas and implement necessary public safety measures. REMS was developed by the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate's National Urban Security Technology Laboratory and is currently being implemented by the New York City Police Department. 12
Radiological Operations Support Specialist (ROSS)
Radiological Operations Support Specialist (ROSS) is a National Incident Management (NIMS) typed position to address the significant radiological, social, and public health complexities of radiological and nuclear (rad/nuc) emergencies. This is a forum for radiation safety professionals, emergency responders, and emergency managers to identify ROSS best practices, insights, and lessons learned. It will also be an opportunity for forum members to help define appropriate ROSS training, credentialing, and skills, knowledge, and abilities. The ROSS supports rad/nuc emergency response by integrating into the incident Command System (ICS) and can operate anywhere from the forward field to the Emergency Operation Center. The ROSS brings specialized skills and understanding in plume modeling, radiological data assessment, and the hazards and risks associated with a rad/nuc incident. The ROSS uses technical tools such as RadResponder and CMWeb to help collect, collate, and communicate critical technical data to federal partners and key state and local decision makers. The ROSS is essential to help communities best use and integrate federal response assets (such as IMAAC, NARAC, RAP, NG CST, FRMAC, AMS, REAC/TS, and the Advisory Team) and their products. 6
Region 2 Incident Management Team CT
The CT Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS), through the Incident Management Team of the Statewide Emergency Management and Homeland Security Coordinating Council (Coordinating Council), has been assisting in the establishment of regional all-hazards Incident Management Teams (IMTs), corresponding to the DEMHS regions.
