Found a brief overview of what we were acutally doing.

From DoD DSCA New Alert: The Colorado Army National Guard Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear Explosive (CBRNE) Consequence Management Reaction Force (CCMRF) tested their capabilities to effectively respond to national emergencies during the National Emergency Response Exercise by launching UH-60 Black Hawk and CH-47 Chinook helicopters from the Army Aviation Support Facility at Buckley Air Force Base July 23. The Aviation Task Force responded to simulated events throughout Colorado to validate its responsibility as a CCMRF support element. Aircraft and personnel from the Nebraska Army National Guard also participated. The "Blackjacks" were appointed by the Secretary of Defense to be the Aviation Task Force for the continental United States which will support CCMRF teams around the country. They are the first Guard unit to be delegated this responsibility, which has only been assigned to active duty U.S. Army units in the past. More than 400 Soldiers took part in all of the day's operations at the various sites in Denver and Colorado Springs. (Colorado National Guard Public Affairs)
