Virginia National Guard Soldiers and Airmen assigned to the Fort Pickett-based 34th Civil Support Team conduct a training exercise Feb. 16, 2022, at the Virginia Public Safety Training Center in Hanover County, Virginia. During the exercise, CST survey teams conducted reconnaissance and collected samples from a house suspected to contain multiple drug labs. VNG Soldiers assigned to the Counterdrug Task Force also observed the training event. The 34th CST supports first responders during potential hazardous materials incidents involving possible chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosive threats and can identify unknown substances, assess current and projected consequences, advise an incident commander on response measures and assist with requests for additional state support.
