"The Radiological Assistance Program (RAP), established in the late 1950's, is one of the emergency response resources, or assets, administered by NNSA [National Nuclear Security Administration]. RAP is NNSA's first-responding resource in assessing the emergency situation and advising decision-makers on what further steps could be taken to evaluate and minimize the hazards of a radiological emergency. Specific areas of expertise include assessment, area monitoring, and air sampling, exposure and contamination control."
