The HQ USAFE/A4CX, Emergency Management Branch expert support in Readiness and Emergency Management (R&EM) and planning for both Air Force Forces (AFFOR) and Major Command (MAJCOM) operational Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) planning functions. These capabilities are critical to ensuring USAFE can meet new emerging CBRNE readiness focus requirements for home station, expeditionary, and contingency environments across the USEUCOM Area of Responsibility (AOR).
Expertise required includes detailed gap analysis on current CBRNE threats to USAFE installations and resources throughout Europe, provide proposed mitigation actions, and develop MAJCOM-level Support Plans. They will coordinate MAJCOM Support Plans to meet the planning requirements of Combatant Command (CCMD), Department of Defense (DoD), sister Services, interagency, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Allies, and partner nations in Europe. The MAJCOM-level CBRNE Plans will be critical for the command’s plans development and the identification of critical CBRNE steady-state, contingency training, exercise and equipment requirements for main operating bases (MOB), geographically separated units (GSU), cooperative support locations (CSL), and forward operating locations (FOL).
