Coming Soon: The National Guard Homeland Response Force (HRF) for FEMA Region 7

Last October I was talking to an acquaintance of mine who is a high ranking Missouri National Guard soldier. As we talked over coffee he starts to talk about how he wouldn’t trust anything electronic right now. What do you mean? I asked him.CB


He proceeded to talk about a meeting he was called into over the weekend with the Missouri Adjutant General, one that involved all the Missouri National Guard commands in the state.   He said they were worried about North Korean EMP weapons. I got the impression the meeting may have been prompted from higher up but he didn’t specify.

He then warned, I better have some food stored and a way to cook it, said he personally went out and bought 6 months worth supplies for him and his household.

As he talked, told me to remember the term of ‘Focus Units’ I think he said “line” focus units, units that can be  ready at a moment’s notice and that’s what they are calling them at this time, at least for the National Guard.

You should understand it is very unusual to have National Guard units to be prepared in advance. Usually when units are called up we go through several months of training and get issued new equipment at that time if it’s needed.

It reminded me of another National Guard soldier I know. He had been telling me about all the new equipment they were getting in the Guard.

Units in the Mo Guard are being issued brand new M-4 rifles along with brand new Aimpoint red dot scopes. They are also receiving several brand new M-2 .50 cal machine guns, M-240B 7.62mm NATO light machine guns, and M-249 SAW 5.56 NATO light machine guns. Brand new M-320 grenade launchers (pictured above mounted on an M4 rifle) as well. In addition to the new weapons they are receiving New NVG’s and M-4 mountable thermal scopes.

I filed it all in the back in my memory bank as a little odd. It’s not too unusual for the National Guard to be prepared, but it is somewhat unusual for so much money to be spent on National Guard units. Generally the new equipment goes to active duty units, and the National Guard gets the active duty leftovers.

This week I noticed something unusual on the Missouri National Guard’s website. In the job listings are several listings for volunteers to serve for 5 to 7 months on something called the Missouri National Guard Homeland Response Force (HRF). The ‘in country’ deployment dates are 01Feb-30Apr 2018 with tour ending 30SEP 2018. Here is a link to one of the job listings but it closes in late Jan and will probably be taken down then.  The various jobs were open only to National Guard members, all MOS’s (military jobs) ranks E4 up to O3 (enlisted and officers).

Do these jobs have anything to do with the “Focus Units”? I asked around and nobody seemed to know. I also asked around as to what exactly is the “Homeland Response Force” Again nobody seemed to know. So I did some digging and found a document from the Rand Corp. written in 2010. National Guard document on the same.

“SecDef has approved the implementation of a plan to restructure the CCMRFs which includes an integrated state response capability based on the CSTs, CERFPs and the standup of 10 NG Regional Homeland Response Forces (HRFs) ‐ one per FEMA regional. These geographically distributed HRFs will improve the ability of DoD to quickly respond in case of a major or catastrophic CBRNE CM event by providing the necessary life saving capabilities to the incident area within hours vice days. The NG is committed to providing this capability to the DoD, the Governors of the 54 states and territories and the American people.”

Yes it states 54 states.

Here are the Acronym translations from FEMA:

CCMRF- Consequence Management Response Force

CST- Civil Support Team (National Guard–for WMD)

CERFP- Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and High Yield Explosive (CBRNE) Enhanced Response Force Package (CERFP)

NG- National Guard

FEMA- Federal Emergency Management Agency

DoD- Department of Defense

CBRNE-CM- Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, or High-Yield Explosive – Consequence Management

According to the Rand Doc, a Homeland Response Force:

“When directed the NG Homeland Response Force (HRF) alerts, assembles and deploys to save lives and mitigate human suffering and prepares for follow-on forces.”

“The HRFs mission is simple – conduct operations to save lives and to reduce human suffering in the event of a CBRNE incident”

It goes on to describe a 48 hour response to any emergency including Nuclear, biological, chemical and/or explosive events. There are 10 HRF’s each responsible for their respective FEMA region.

Even though I was unable to find anyone within the Mo Guard who knew what this unit was all about, a simple Google search showed me they are nothing new.

In 2010 Congressman Ike Skelton (retired) announced them to the state, and they have had several training exercises. Here is a Department of Defense announcement about them as well. But why now? Is this anything unusual, or is it just training as usual.

This time the Homeland Response Force will be on a 6 month deployment inside Missouri, I wonder if they will be activated for the other FEMA regions as well.

In Matthew 24 Jesus told us:

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

This could be nothing more than a rumor.

This could be nothing more than just good old fashioned preparedness.

I didn’t need my friend to tell me to store extra food, as this is something I have told people for years. It’s good to be reminded of it though. I did feel somewhat vindicated because several years ago whenever I brought the subject up people treated me like a “doomsday prepper”. It never hurts to be prepared, a lesson I learned in a particularly bad ice storm we had several years back. I had not stored extra food before that, but have ever since.

Do yourself a favor, store some extra food and water for you and your family. It may be up to 48 hours or more for the National Guard to save you.

  2. New Madrid Fault Fema Region 7 The jade helm map and

    Magnitude 2.7 earthquake shakes New Madrid, Mo
    Posted 10:12 am, January 22, 2018



    The nuclear power plants in the path along with the US NATURAL GAS INFRASTRUCTURE RUNNING DIRECTLY IN THE MIDST OF means a lot of “”BANG”.The # of quakes in Oklahoma alone reaches dozens per month.The coffins,body bags,mobile morgue units etc etc .The heavy GOV FIST” AND HAMMER to follow is what those of us left will have to deal with.
    May God protect those who cry out to HIM .Back in 2011 FEMA had ordered Meals for 7 Million SURVIVORS, 7 Million Cotton Blankets, and Additional 6 Million Cotton Blankets “2013”, Fuel, Underwater Body Bags, Bio Suits etc FEMA Requests Info on Availability of 140 Million Meals, Blankets and Body Bags for New Madrid Fault Zone FEMA repeats orders for millions of blankets and other worrisome supplies
    Wednesday, August 28, 2013 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had requested 7 million cotton blankets, millions of servings of Meals-Ready-to-Eat (MRE), and millions of underwater body bags.
    History is repeating itself. Because they’re ordering 6 million more blankets, and thousands of gallons of propane, diesel, and gasoline.
    Worrisome, because the original requests from January 2011 have been erased from the FBO website. Blankets, body bags, etc. All the information has been deleted from the FBO website.
    So much for the most transparent administration in American History. The Louisiana Sinkhole, The New Madrid Earthquake And The Dollar Collapse
    Posted on November 18, 2012 by horse237

    There is a sinkhole in Louisiana’s Assumption Parish (county) that could bring America to its knees. The first video below is 15 minutes long. It uses mainstream news to give us a background on salt dome sinkholes. It neglects the information the shorter video contains. That sinkhole is made from collapsing salt domes that are being used as storage for the US Strategic Energy Preserve and contains 18.5 million barrels of butane stored there at the request of the federal government. Why anyone would store butane near the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi river is a question that will be asked more than once after it blows sky high. Hint to the federal government: Water dissolves salt which causes enormous sinkholes.

    The salt dome caverns are twice the height of the Empire State building. One of the caverns is unintentionally filling up with oil.

    That first video also shows news clips of methane gas bubbling up from below the surface of the ground at dozens of locations in the area. There are lots of unexplained fires in the state as well which could be fueled by methane. And the local authorities have been trying to prevent explosions by checking for methane buildup in buildings. But what if the methane were to build up in caverns adjacent to the butane and oil? What would the resultant blast be equivalent to in terms of earthquakes and nuclear bombs?

    Dr Paul Brown wrote a series of articles in which he concluded that the sinkhole could have a blast 100 times that of Hiroshima. But he was using the mainstream figures of 1.5 million barrels of butane which is what is in one of the caverns. But the total is 18.5 million barrels from all of the caverns plus the oil and the methane. An 8.35 earthquake has twice the blast power of a 25 megaton Hydrogen bomb. This sinkhole could seriously damage the state capitol Baton Rouge 50 miles (81 km) away. It might even damage New Orleans 75 miles (121 km) away as well as the levees on the Mississippi river. The latter protect against flooding when not blown up by the Mossad to save Jewish real estate investments.

    Dr Brown also did not mention the fact that Texas Brine Corporation was allowed to store liquid nuclear waste in one of the caverns. The blast would radiate the area making rescue and recovery efforts difficult. And, if the state capitol were taken out, the federal government would have to administer what was left of Louisiana. I can assure you that there are no preparations for this disaster. Compare what happened to New York and New Jersey earlier this month to what FDR did for a similar storm in 1938 in the same area. He had 100,000 men offering relief 24 hours after the storm passed through.

    While we are on the topic of government stupidity the second video does mention that giant flare that was lit near the fumes from 18.5 million barrels of butane. Need I say more?

    Events do not happen in isolation except in the mind of neo-classical economists. Those salt domes are all part of the
    Louann salt formation which stretches all the way from Texas to the Florida panhandle. A blast this size could have unknown consequences for many salt domes in the area as they would be exposed to water. This would dissolve the caverns and cause more sinkholes which are often near oil wells. The first video shows what in a case like that 30 years ago in Louisiana.

    I have been informed by a man who used to work on the the Inter-Coastal Canal that it is well within the blast area and would be shut down. It carries barge traffic from Carrabelle, Florida, to Brownsville, Texas. It is 1700 kilometers (1050 mi) long and would be a severe economic loss. .

    The other problem is that a blast of this magnitude could increase pressure on the New Madrid fault and faults and volcanoes in the Gulf of Mexico. Suffice to say that there are 11 nuclear power plants and 40 million people in the immediate vicinity of the New Madrid fault zone. There are another 14 nuclear power plants not too far away. The 4 New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812 were so powerful that they reversed the flow of the Mississippi river and rang church bells in Boston more than 1,200 miles (1,930 km) away. In its infinite wisdom the federal government permitted the construction of nuclear power plants on top of America’s most powerful quake zone adjacent to one of the world’s most powerful rivers. That river flows into the Gulf of Mexico. The Fukushima power plant did not fall into the Pacific Ocean but is leaking enough radioactive material into it to contaminate it in its entirety in 1,000 days. So what happens to you and me when we lose the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans?

    Assumption Parish is crisscrossed with 36 inch (.9 meters) oil and natural gas pipelines which would make excellent secondary fuel sources for explosions and fires. There are two oil refineries within an expected 25 mile blast radius and quite a few more within 55 to 88 miles.

    The 1.2 Gigawatt Waterford nuclear power plant is 45 miles away at Killona, Louisiana. The River Bend nuclear power plant is 82 miles away at St Francisville, Louisiana. American Nuclear power containment buildings are required to withstand a direct hit from a jet passenger liner at landing speed of 167 mph (269 kmh). The danger is that a blast of this magnitude would take out the power grid for several weeks. American nuclear power plants have batteries to power the cooling system for 4 to 8 hours. After that it is up to generators. The critical problem would be what happens to all that piping at the Waterford plant.

    Questions: What happens after the New Madrid quakes of 2013 when 40 million Americans wake up without electricity, sewers and running water? What happens when the injured have no standing hospitals? What happens when there are no roads and railroads to bring them food?

    Ok, I stumbled across this article and had to reply. I’m a member of the MO Guard and I’m currently a part of this HRF mission. First off, yes this operation has been around a while and is really no big secret. It’s not about martial law or any other crazy conspiracy crap.

    This program was developed after the Fukashima nuclear meltdown in Japan. The Japanese struggled to deal with that incident and the U.S. decided that it should have a program in place in case another 3 mile island incident happened. The National Guard Bureau volunteered to handle the task if given the funding for training and equipment, since it fell within the scope of the their State Emergency duties.

    The HRF units are trained to also respond to dirty bombs, chemical spills (train derailments, etc), or other mass casualty incident as needed. The Regions are evaulated by FEMA every couple of years to enusure proper training and prepardness. Evaluations consist of hundreds of civilian actors, makeup artists and realistic scenarios over approximately 3 days.

    Here is an excellent video from Region X that explains a lot about HRF operations.
