Center for National Response

IIT provides expert exercise and training planners and observers for the Center for National Response at the West Virginia Memorial Tunnel near Charleston, West Virginia, which is a part of the Joint Interagency Training Center-East. In 1999, IIT helped the Department of Defense Consequence Management Program Integration Office meet congressional direction to initiate planning and development of a training center in the more than 79,000 square feet of the two-lane, 2,800-foot-long highway tunnel to train local, state, federal, and military response units for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Consequence Management (CM) and Counterterrorism (CT). Today, IIT is part of the contractor-team operating and maintaining the CNR. IIT has helped the Center enhance its training processes and provides highly-qualified exercise planners and observer-controllers for CNR training and mobile training teams. The CNR supports a wide-array of national response assets and teams.
