PERRY, GA - A small container filled with radioactive material sits on the back of a cadre vehicle, used for training purposes during a Global Dragon training event at the Guardian Center of Georgia on March 15, 2015. While there is a negiligible amount of material inside the container, it is enough to be picked up be the delicate instruments used to detect radilogical products.
During this day's training, airmen searched for material following a simulated aircraft crash in a deployed location. Students wore Mission Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) 4 gear, and used Gieger Counters to search through an empty field for the lost material.
Global Dragon provides a refresher course for Airmen, allowing them to put their skills to use to identify live chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents and materials. Air National Guard emergency management technicians from more than 20 individual units participated in Global Dragon.
