  3. JOINT FORCE RESOURCE HANDBOOK MINNESOTA NATIONAL GUARD ACTIVATION PROCEDURES The Governor may order the National Guard to State Active Duty when an emergency is beyond the capabilities of civilian authorities. Minnesota State law authorizes the 87 county sheriffs and the mayors of cities of the First Class (Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and Duluth) to request National Guard assistance. All local requests must go first to the MN Duty Officer who will then contact the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM). HSEM evaluates the request and validates that the National Guard is the appropriate agency to respond. HSEM conducts a joint mission assessment with the National Guard; the Governor approves the request and issues an emergency executive order. The Guard’s J-3 Operations Office activates the appropriate units and contacts the incident commander.


  5. CAMP RIPLEY Camp Ripley, located seven miles north of Little Falls, is the primary training site for the Minnesota National Guard. It is easily accessed by car, bus, or plane. SIZE: 52,928 acres (18 miles x 7 miles) HOUSING CAPACITY: All-weather housing for 3,700 personnel and seasonal housing for 6,800 FACILITIES: C-130 capable airfield State-of-the-art meeting and conference center Small arms ranges and tactical and emergency response training sites Large blocks of land for search and rescue training Catered meals available USES: Emergency housing for up to 10,500

  6. Arden Hills Army Training Site AHATS The Arden Hills Army Training Site (AHATS) is a military training area under the control of the Minnesota National Guard and located next to the Ramsey County Government Center. Formally known as the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP), the facility produced over 16.5 billion rounds of small-arms ammunition for World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam Conflict.  AHATS is utilized for small unit military training and can be used by emergency responders and law enforcement for exercises.

  7. 133rd Airlift Wing The 133rd Airlift Wing (133rd AW) is a Minnesota Air National Guard wing headquartered adjacent to the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. Utilizing the C-130 Hercules, the 133rd AW provides the U.S. Air Force with tactical airlift of troops, cargo, and medical patients anywhere in the world. Additionally, the 133rd AW is prepared to support the State of Minnesota with troops capable of assisting in a disaster. There are five major units in the 133rd AW: Headquarters Group, Maintenance Group, Operations Group, Medical Group, and Mission Support Group. The 133rd has hosted training sessions for law enforcement and responders.

  8. 148th Fighter Wing When members of the 148th Fighter Wing of the Minnesota Air National Guard are not mobilized or under federal control, they report to the Governor. The Wing, located in Duluth, is supervised by the Adjutant General of the State. Under state law the Air National Guard provides protection of life and property and preserves peace, order and public safety. These missions are accomplished through emergency relief support during natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and forest fires; search and rescue operations; support to civil defense authorities; maintenance of vital public services and counterdrug operations. The 148th resources include F-16 Combat Airframes, medical, firefighting, explosive ordinance disposal assets and a joint communication platform (JCP) that provides network connectivity, phones, radio interoperability and limited power provided by twin 20 kw generators.

  9. JFHQ-MN JOINT OPERATIONS CENTER (JOC) AND WATCH STATION • The Minnesota National Guard has enhanced its ability to maintain situational awareness, provide continuous communications connectivity, support the Minnesota Emergency Operations Center for homeland security, and provide forward command and control facilities for U.S. Northern Command when required for homeland defense. • The Joint Force Headquarters-Minnesota (JFHQ-MN) Joint Operations Center (JOC) achieved initial operational capability in the spring of 2004 and became fully mission capable in February 2005. • The Watch Station is a sub-component of the JOC and is staffed to operate continuously 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The JOC and Watch Station staff are NIMS compliant. • The role of the Watch Station is to ensure continuous secure communication connectivity between JFHQ-MN and the National Guard Bureau JOC in Washington, DC, as well as the U.S. Northern Command’s Operations Center in Colorado Springs, CO. • The Watch Station also is required to maintain up-to-the-minute situational awareness and provide indications and warning (I&W) to JFHQ-MN staff and MN National Guard units in our area of operations, plus designated areas of interest. • The Joint Continental United States Communications Support Environment (JCCSE), a Department of Defense initiative, will utilize the JFHQ-MN JOC as the primary conduit for military communications between DOD and Minnesota. • The JOC is activated for specific contingencies that may require additional planning, coordination and support. The JOC will focus on designated contingencies, while the Watch Station always maintains its broader I&W lookout function. • When fully activated, the JOC has representatives from operations, intelligence, weather, geographic information systems, logistics, personnel, public affairs, communications, medical, aviation, and legal, as well as other specialties as needed. A liaison will also be sent to the State EOC as required. • The JOC is designed to allow area expansion to host other agencies or military units if required in the case of very large incidents. • There are alternate JOC facilities at other locations in Minnesota.

  10. Minnesota National Guard Reaction Forces The Minnesota National Guard will custom tailor the military support response to fit the needs of the requesting jurisdiction. The Minnesota National Guard maintains two types of reaction forces, both available for state and federal active duty on short notice: 1. Quick Reaction Force, 2. Rapid Reaction Force. Possible support missions include— Natural disasters Area/building searches Cordon operations Road block/checkpoint operations WMD operations Civil disturbance/Mass arrest operations Mass casualty operations Urban/rural combat operations Quick Reaction Force The QRF is capable of mustering a force of 175 soldiers within four hours of alert. This unit is trained, equipped and armed to perform a full range of military support to civil authority missions. Rapid Reaction Force The RRF is capable of mustering a force of at least 250 soldiers within 24 hours of alert. This unit has been specifically trained to conduct civil disturbance operations and is the follow-on force for the QRF. Their mission equipment is stored in a central location. Civil Disturbance The Minnesota National Guard is capable of fielding a total force of approximately 1,300 soldiers equipped with riot control equipment within 48 to 72 hours. Specialized equipment can be requested and would arrive in 24 to 48 hours.

  11. Inter-Agency Operations Emergency Response Vehicle and Civil Response / Communications Trailer Emergency Response Vehicle The ERV is the transport mode for the National Guard Rapid Assessment Team to respond to an incident. The team will provide technical assistance and resources to the local Incident Commanders to fill emergency response gaps. • Communications • Multiple radio bands: SINGARS/HF/VHF/UHF/800 • ACU 1000 for radio interoperability • PACSTAR (deployable case with LAN/WAN/SAT phone capabilities) • VHF/800 MHz portables • Satellite phones • GPS camera

  12. 55th Civil Support Team (WMD) • CST MISSION • The mission of the 55th CST is to support civil authorities at a domestic chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-explosive (CBRNE) incident site by identifying CBRNE agents/substances, assessing current and projected consequences, advising on response measures, and assisting with appropriate requests for state support. Mission types include: • Response: Deploy by request from IC for incident that has already occurred • Standby: Deploy for pre-emptive screening and monitoring for high profile events • Assist: Provide modeling or subject matter expert support without deployment • Planning: Partners in local and state emergency response planning • Training: Interagency individual and section skill training, full scale emergency response exercises, and provide specialized training to others CST Concept The CST mission is unique to the National Guard and teams are manned by 22 active duty Air and Army National Guard personnel that are prepared to respond 24/7/365. The CST is federally funded with state level control through the National Guard chain of command, which eliminates many restrictions against working with domestic emergency services. CSTs are prohibited from deployment overseas and are employed as a single unit. Congress restricted their employment for domestic missions only. Their service is free to the communities they serve. CST Training Each team member undergoes extensive individual training tailored to his position, and each CST conducts continuous unit training with local, state, and federal emergency responders. All CST members are certified Hazmat technicians and the team operates IAW 29 CFR 1910.120 and NFPA 471.472 standards. Each CST is certified by the Secretary of Defense before assuming its role in National Guard Bureau’s Response Management Plan. The CSTs also undergo external evaluation on an 18-month cycle to ensure they maintain their proficiency. CST Equipment CSTs are equipped with cutting edge field technology including military and commercial off-the-shelf equipment. The CST utilizes GSA vehicles for a low profile at incident scenes. Key items of equipment include two advanced communications platforms, a mobile chemical and biological analytical laboratory, and a cold weather technical decontamination trailer.

  13. CST Support to Local Authorities • The 55th CST can provide a wide range of support to the local incident commander • to include: • CBRNE reconnaissance, monitoring, and sampling • Digital still and video photography, wireless live video feed to ICP • Mobile laboratory for on-scene, presumptive chemical and biological analysis • Plume modeling and hazard prediction • Secure voice and data communication via satellite • Multiple radio bands: HF/UHF/VHF/800/Military (secure capable) • Radio cross-banding with ACU-1000 for radio interoperability • The CST has the following limitations: • Not capable of conducting mass casualty decontamination by itself • Not capable of conducting EOD operations alone • Limited capability for extended operations requires the augmentation of additional personnel and logistical support for extended operations. This can be requested through military channels.

  17. Minnesota National Guard’s Critical Infrastructure Assessment Program The Minnesota National Guard’s Critical Infrastructure Program consists of two separate organizations: a Federal Team called the Critical Infrastructure Assessment Team and a State Team called the Full Spectrum Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (FSIVA) Team. The Federal Team is funded by the DHS to conduct site assistance visits (SAV) and to assist law enforcement officials in developing a buffer zone protection plan (BZPP) of critical infrastructure throughout the Nation. The SAV methodology is designed to facilitate vulnerability identification and mitigation discussions between government and industry in the field. The SAV is an information gathering visit which is non-regulatory. The visit is not an inspection and there is no pass-fail grade. A report will not be sent to other agencies detailing findings from the visit. No recommendations are provided during an SAV, only options for consideration. Options for consideration are provided to facilities to take the specific information and work it into their own risk management framework to determine whether further action is merited. To begin the SAV process within Minnesota, a request with justification for the SAV must be made via the DHS Protective Security Advisor, Glenn Sanders at (612) 215-6501 or The BZPP Program is a Federal Grant program that provides funding for local jurisdictions in which critical infrastructure and key resources are located. This program is administered within Minnesota by HSEM. The FSIVA Team conducts vulnerability assessments of both private and public organizations for the state of Minnesota, with an emphasis on critical infrastructure. These assessments consist of an in-brief, a walk-through with interviews of specified organizational members, a threat analysis, the preparation of a written document with a final presentation, and then an out-brief. The out-brief, an interactive session that utilizes graphic aids, is presented to organizational leadership. It outlines observations made of the organization’s physical security, disaster preparedness and emergency response plans and provides courses of action to strengthen and enhance these areas. Using the vulnerability assessment, an operations plan (OPLAN) is created specifically for that organization to be used in the event that the Minnesota National Guard is activated to assist in securing it. All proprietary information collected through the course of the assessment, to include facts and findings discovered as a result of the assessment, are kept confidential and secure and are exempt from mandatory release through the Freedom of Information Act. These assessments are conducted free of charge and are arranged only with the permission of the organization. Training The FSIVA Team also offers free training to organizations on Terrorism Awareness, Vehicle Inspection, and Surveillance Detection

  18. Counterdrug Program The Minnesota National Guard is a partner with law enforcement agencies (LEAs), schools, and community based organizations (CBOs) in a two-pronged attack on illicit drug/ narco-terrorism threats. The Drug Interdiction program works with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to interdict the flow of illegal drugs and combat narco-terrorism in Minnesota along with transnational threats along the international border. The Drug Demand Reduction (DDR) program focuses on educating Minnesota youth to reduce the demand for drugs. We accomplish this by providing anti-drug programs at the grade school, middle school, and high school levels. These programs work with Minnesota youth to reduce the demand for illegal drugs through education, teaching resiliency skills, by providing positive role models, teamwork, and alternatives to drug use. We currently offer the following free support under the Drug Interdiction Program: Criminal Analysts. Military personnel assigned to civilian law enforcement agencies work as Intelligence Analysts, assisting with illegal drug/narco-terrorism case investigations. We have people assigned at federal, state, and local levels. Tactical Law Enforcement Support. This includes the use of military aviation assets, limited ground surveillance assets, and other support as requested, as personnel, funding, and regulations allow. Drug Detection Support. Counterdrug has Ion Scanners set to detect drugs. They utilize the science of Ion Mobility Spectrometry to quickly detect drugs and are extremely accurate. One scanner is vehicle mounted to support mobile Interdiction efforts and all Ion Scan support comes with a trained operator. Ion Scan 400B Ion Scan 500DT Ion Scan SABRE 4000

  19. Counterdrug Training. The Minnesota National Guard Counterdrug Program co-sponsors, at free or reduced cost, P.O.S.T. approved, drug/narco-terrorism related training with the BCA, the Midwest Counterdrug Training Center (MCTC), and other sources for law enforcement, emergency responders, community based organization and educational personnel. Courses are taught at BCA buildings in St. Paul, Camp Ripley, or other military facilities in the state. Equipment. The Counterdrug program coordinates with state and local law enforcement agencies to obtain free surplus military weapons, vehicles, and equipment through the 1033 Surplus Equipment Program and reduced cost new equipment through the 1122 Federal Procurement Program, which allows law enforcement agencies to purchase items at the federal government contract price. We currently offer the following free support under the Demand Reduction Program: Fly-In Program. At the request of MN law enforcement officers, schools, or community based organizations, a National Guard helicopter flies to a school or similar area and gives a presentation incorporating aviation with a drug-free life style. This program is geared toward the elementary level. Adventure Program. The Adventure Program provides a leadership and team building focus through a Low Ropes Challenge Course. This is a leadership and life-skills development program for youth that features problem-solving activities designed to challenge the minds of the participants. This program is geared toward the junior high level. Drug Abuse Education Program. This program increases youth’s ability to recognize and avoid the dangers of drugs and drug-related crimes. It focuses on the physical and psychological effects of drugs on the body, along with the effects of drug abuse on the family, school, community and reaching life goals. This program is geared towards the senior high level. For more information on the Counterdrug Program and to download required documents, go to our website at: or email: 1033 Program 1122 Program
