Mobilizing Onsite at National Special Security Events
CSS operates and maintains EPA mobile analytical units that travel to support multi-agency security efforts during high profile events that draw large crowds.
Standing Ready to Protect the Health and Safety of Attendees at Large Public Gatherings
CSS operates and maintains EPA mobile analytical units that travel to support multi-agency security efforts during highly profile events that draw large crowds. These gatherings have included a visit from the Pope, and national political conventions.
