Jack Rabbit II Program—Chemical Security Analysis Center Fact Sheet

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chemical Security Analysis Center (CSAC) is leading the Jack Rabbit II project, a 4-year program that began in late 2013 for which a series of large-scale outdoor chlorine release trials will be conducted with a collaborative team of partners from government, industry and academia. Field trials and follow-on studies will fill critical knowledge, data and capability gaps for toxic inhalation hazard (TIH) chemical release modeling and emergency response procedures, which have never been experimentally tested or validated at scales represented by rail car, tanker truck, barge or storage tank release scenarios.
