DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE UNITED STATES CENTRAL COMMAND AIR FORCES (USCENTAF) OFFICE OF THE COMMAND SURGEON APO NEW YORK 09852 Reply To Attn Of: SGPB 28 Jan 91 Subject: USAF Anthrax Detection Program To: SG SGPB/SGHL IN TURN 1. As you are already aware (via the USCENTAF CV's msg 271700Z Jan 91, entitled Anthrax Detection Program), a USAF Anthrax Detection Program has been implemented within the theater. With the receipt of this letter, you also received the equipment and supplies needed to conduct the required monitoring at your location. Please inform your wing commander immediately of the receipt of this equipment and your impending monitoring capability. Strongly recommend that you expedite set up of your monitoring system so that you are operational as soon as possible. When you become fully operational, indicate this status in your next MEDSTAT (bed status) report. 2. The local OPR for the monitoring program should be the Bioenvironmental-Engineering (BEE) Office with the Laboratory functioning as the OCR. The BEE Office will need to establish close coordination with the Disaster Preparedness Office to integrate this monitoring capability into the base plan and to establish specific reporting procedures. 3. The USCENTAF Disaster Preparedness Office (DOS) recently distributed a checklist entitled Biological Warfare Response Actions to their folks in the field. This package provides guidance on how the theater detection program is set-up and details reporting procedures. You will need to review this document to get a full appreciation concerning the total biological detection program. There are CENTCOM established specialized response teams located throughout the theater which have additional biological detection capability besides that which we are providing you.
