Wednesday, March 16, 2011 – In follow up to last night’s decision to evacuate the team from Japan – CMAT is currently in the process of transitioning equipment and supplies from its warehouse in Toronto, to Vancouver in anticipation of re-deployment at the earliest possible opportunity. We continue to monitor nuclear safety concerns through the Global Disaster Alert Coordination System (GDACS), to facilitate decision-making for our teams.
Our Assessment Team members are to remain working at the staging area in Vancouver instead of Tokyo for re-deployment as quickly as possible. We are also placing medical and rescue personnel with CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) training on standby.
In the meantime we are urgently appealing for donations to purchase Nomad Water Purification units which are available for immediate shipping to the affected areas.
