Members of the Oklahoma National Guard's 63rd Civil Support Team train alongside the Yukon Police Department and Yukon Fire Department during an exercise held in Yukon, Oklahoma, Tuesday, August 8, 2023. The exercise focused on the discovery of an unknown substance where the CST was called to utilize their experience and equipment to detect the substance—in this case, the substance discovered was (notional) fentanyl. As the fentanyl epidemic increases, members of the CST are working with local law enforcement to help train and educate agencies on their capabilities and equipment.
