The Medical Radiobiology Advisory Team (MRAT) is a deployable team responsible for providing expert advice to incident commanders and staff during a radiological incident. The MRAT is a two-person team, usually consisting of 1 health physicist and 1 physician, specializing in the health effects of radiation, biodosimetry, and treatment of radiation casualties. The MRAT can be deployed to augment the DTRA CMAT or operate independently, and is available for reachback support to DoD personnel.
AFRRI Safety Culture Work Environment (SCWE)
AFRRI leadership is committed to establishing and maintaining a safety conscious work environment (SCWE) by providing all AFRRI personnel (Federal civilian, military and contractor) with various mechanisms to raise nuclear safety concerns. We are promoting SCWE by establishing the Employee Concerns Program (ECP), which is intended to function as an alternative mechanism for AFRRI personnel to raise nuclear safety concerns if and when they choose not to use the normal process of notifying their supervisors and managers. The documents are provided here (USU/AFRRI employees only).
