All Star game got radiological threat detection team

Chase Field

As Major League Baseball’s best players took the field at the All Star Game on July 12, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) fielded its own team of experts at the event to support overall preventative radiological/nuclear detection (PRND) security measures.

The deployment to Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ was routine for NNSA. The agency deploys teams more than 100 times a year, mainly within the U.S., it said, adding that most are radiological search deployments that are based on intelligence, support of law enforcement, or planned events like the MLB’s All-Star game, presidential inaugurations or political conventions.

The agency said it provided personnel and equipment resources over a six-day period to enhance security measures at the game.

The PRND operations at Chase Field included support personnel from NNSA’s Radiological Assistance Program (RAP), the FBI Hazardous Materials Response Team (HMRT), Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, and the Phoenix Fire and Police Departments, according to NNSA.

“NNSA is well equipped to help enhance radiological/nuclear security at major events like the All-Star Game,” said Joseph Krol, associate administrator for emergency operations. “Monitoring the game is part of NNSA’s mission to protect the public, environment, and emergency responders from both terrorist and non-terrorist events. NNSA is fortunate to have an efficient and effective radiological emergency response team to keep the public safe, especially at large gatherings.”
