Vince Sharp, observer controller trainer, U.S. Army North, ensures that Staff Sgt. Adam Swager, 51st Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team, Michigan Army National Guard, follows the correct protocol Aug. 16, 2011. Swager assured "victims" of a simulated 10-kiloton nuclear detonation that help was on the way. Swager and his teammates were the first responders on scene for the beginning of Vibrant Response 12, a multi-agency, multi-component exercise conducted by U.S. Army North to prepare federal military forces for their role in responding to a catastrophic chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear incident in the homeland.
