ORAU has worked to build an unmatched reputation in training and the medical management of radiation emergencies for more than 30 years.
Our qualified staff provides hands-on continuing medical education training and through an interdisciplinary radiation emergency medical response approach, we maintain around-the-clock emergency response teams capable of providing medical and health physics consultation on radiation accidents worldwide.
Some of our most recent training and emergency response successes include:
REAC/TS recently facilitated an international exercise that involved the scoring of abnormal chromosomes used for radiation dose estimation.
REAC/TS supported a DOE exercise at the U.S. Army Cold Regions Test Center to test the safe characterization, stabilization, packaging and shipment of radiological materials in extreme environments.
REAC/TS traveled to Iraq, South Africa and Morocco to train physicians, nurses and first responders for emergencies involving radioactive materials.
REAC/TS added to its international reputation by joining the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Response Assistance Network (RANET).
