Along with highly skilled medical professionals, Georgia also has chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defense teams that have been trained and fully equipped through the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) assistance programs. These same teams are currently using that training to provide critical services to the response efforts in Marneuli. We are proud of long-standing close cooperation between DTRA and Georgian CBRN teams, whose work is immensely important and whose need is now more apparent than ever.
