Idaho Civil Support Team

As important as knowing what we can accomplish is understanding what we cannot or will not do to include:

  •  
  • We never take charge of a scene.
  • We are not a bomb squad but we are trained on EOD-related issues.
  • We are not equipped to perform mass casualty response or mass decontamination.


    TRAINING:

     

    hazmat agentsThe 101st CST‘s rigorous training schedule includes numerous local, regional and national level exercises each year. We tailor each exercise to meet both CST training objectives and those of our coordinating partner agencies. We are federally funded, allowing mutually beneficial training to be accomplished at no additional cost to the agencies or municipalities with whom we work.
