Mr. Richard Law from
Information and Technical
Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division
Michigan State Police States that......
The State of Michigan had a number of sets that were
not in the official FEMA sets.
start with the CD-V 777B this set was created because the early CD-V-717
were not reliable enough so we created a kit
that had an extra CD-V715 in it ( this
kit was discontinued in 1988).
The CD-V 777M was issued to the Michigan
Department of Agriculture this had the
CD-V720 that opened to be a crude beta detector. ( it never really worked that
The CD-V777H was issued to hospitals to use in case of emergency. Hospitals started
to get there own instruments
so after about 1991 or so we had less out in the field.
The CD-V 777HI was issued the Michigan Department of Highway
they used this on there
trucks for checking the soil density gauges for radiation leaks and for find lost
They used these instruments until I closed the shop in 1997. They purchased
new ones after that.
The CD-V 777-P
was for MSP patrol cars they were no longer in use when I joined the
shop in 1986.
The CD-V 777ES was issued to
fire and police departments through the counties.
The CD-V 777PP kits were issued to the counties that had nuclear power
plants in them.
The only set missing on the page is the training kits these kits had instruments in
them that did
not meet the + - 10% calibration standard They were in the + - 20%
range though. The dosimeters in the kits met the 10%
standard though they had the 6
CD-V742 and 4 CD-V138 for dosimeters in them.
The counties and local programs
decided which kits went where we issued the kits
according to population and they decided which kits went where. Mostly
they kept the
kits in a central location except for the ES kits that they issued to fire
are links to each type of radiation meters, Dosimeters, and accessories that are in our collection
