The level of planning, quality of training, member participation, and dedication of the entire team at MRC GEM is unmatched. My work at CDC involves preparedness for radiation emergencies, and the MRC GEM is the best trained and prepared MRC in the entire country to respond to nuclear or radiological disasters. Because of that, Gwinnett, Newton, and Rockdale counties are better prepared.
