The Hawaii National Guard’s Civil service team has been in existence for 20 years.

The 93rd Civil Support Team mission is to support civil authorities at the direction of the governor at domestic Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) incident sites by identifying agents and substances, assessing current and projected consequences, advising on response measures, and assisting with requests for additional support in order to help save  lives and minimize property damage.

A CST consists of 22 full-time National Guard personnel 18 Army / 4 Air who are postured for immediate recall 24/7. Because readiness is central to the mission of the 93rd CST, members are some of the most physically and mentally fit individuals in the guard. The unit has higher  standards and several traditional training events a year. Needless to say, they earn their turkey. Some are even competitive in marathons and triathlons.

The 93rd CST has had annual exercises with every county in the state of Hawaii, building relationships with the state and county first responders. They have responded to every natural disaster in the state of Hawaii from 2000 to 2020 and have been in the background monitoring and testing in every large public event They’re on standby for other events such as the Ironman Triathlon, Honolulu Marathon, Aloha Stadium concerts, the Great Aloha Run, Governor’s inauguration, Mayor’s events, and more.
