2 2 DOE/NNSA Mission Protect the public, environment, and the emergency responders by providing a responsive, flexible, efficient, and effective radiological emergency response framework and capability for the Nation

3 3 DOE/NNSA Emergency Response Assets Expert technical advice from the DOE complex in response to:Expert technical advice from the DOE complex in response to: Nuclear weapon accidents and significant incidentsNuclear weapon accidents and significant incidents Radiological accidentsRadiological accidents Lost or stolen radioactive materialsLost or stolen radioactive materials Acts of nuclear terrorismActs of nuclear terrorism Provide access to expertise in nuclear weapons design and production capabilitiesProvide access to expertise in nuclear weapons design and production capabilities Deployable capabilities, configured for a rapid response to any specific nuclear accident or incidentDeployable capabilities, configured for a rapid response to any specific nuclear accident or incident
