Joint Task Force Civil Support (JTF-CS) is a subordinate command of United States Northern Command[1] headquartered at Fort Eustis. Its mission is to provide command and control for Department of Defense forces deployed in support of the National Response Plan, specifically, managing the consequences of a domestic chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or high-yield explosive (CBRNE) consequence management operations. These DoD forces consist of discrete units of specialized consequence management troops from all services called DOD CBRN Response Forces (DCRF).[2]

JTF-CS was created in 1999 to fulfill the Congressional mandate in the 1998 Nunn-Lugar-Domenici legislation [3] for the Secretary of Defense to develop and enhance the federal government's capability to prevent and respond to terrorist attacks.[4]

The current commander of JTF-CS is Major General William A. Hall, Army National Guard.[5]
