Radiological assistance program rap mission

Radiological Assistance Program (RAP) Mission

Provide first-responder radiological assistance to protect the health and safety of the general public and the environment. Assist other Federal, State, Tribal and local agencies in the detection, identification and analysis, and response to events involving the use of radiological/nuclear material.


Radiological assistance program

Radiological Assistance Program

RAP is organized on a regional basis to foster a timely response capability and coordination between DOE and other Federal, State, tribal, and local emergency response elements:

  • Eight geographical DOE regions plus a National Capitol Region

  • Each DOE region is managed by a Regional Response Coordinator (RRC)

Rap team configuration

RAP Team Configuration

  • Each region has a minimum of 3 teams

  • RAP teams consist of trained employees from DOE and DOE contractors/facilities

  • Each team consists of 8 members; one Team Leader, one Team Captain, one Senior Scientist, and five Health Physics Survey/Support personnel

  • Additional personnel are available, such as Public Information Officers, industrial hygienists, transportation specialists, logistics support, etc.


Rap team response

RAP Team Response

  • Fully mobilized within 2 hours of notification

  • On-scene arrival within 6 hours of notification

  • Deployment by dedicated response vehicles, charter air service, or commercial air


Rap team capabilities

RAP Team Capabilities

  • Detection and identification of radioactive materials

  • Monitoring to characterize the radiation environment

  • Assessment and evaluation (hazards and risks)

  • Mitigative advice/consultation

  • ‘Hot Line’ support; personnel for monitoring, decon, and material recovery

  • Public Information support


Standard response equipment

Standard Response Equipment

  • PPE (gloves, booties, respirators, coveralls, dosimetry, etc.)

  • Communications and Logistics gear (hand-held radios, GPS, cell phones, satellite phones, lap tops, etc.)

Requesting the mddu

Requesting the MDDU

  • Any civil authority, Federal, State, Local or Tribal, may make a request for the MDDU to the regional RAP team.

    • The RAP team elevates the request to DOE/NA-42.

    • The decision to authorize the use of MDDU assets is then made by DNDO and NA-42.
