The U.S. Department of State requested the Oregon National Guard’s 102 Civil Support Team to assist law enforcement with events in Portland and Eugene featuring the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, this week. The 102 CST provided chemical, biological, radiological, and other hazardous material detection capabilities, as well as rapid-response decontamination capabilities to help secure the events and ensure public safety.
