The long GRB 240619A (Fermi GBM Final Real-time Localization: Fermi GBM team,
GCN Circ. 36694; BALROG localization: Preis et al., GCN Circ. 36695; Fermi GBM 
Observation: Dalessi et al., GCN Circ. 36717) triggered the CALET Gamma-ray
Burst Monitor (CGBM) at 03:43:30.40 UTC on 19 June 2024
The burst signal was seen by all CGBM detectors.

The burst light curve shows a double-peaked structure that starts
at T+0.6 sec, peaks at T+1.1 sec, and ends at T+37.4 sec.
The T90 and T50 durations measured by the SGM data are 35.0 +/- 1.3 sec
and 28.5 +/- 1.1 sec (40-1000 keV), respectively.

The ground-processed light curve is available at

The CALET data used in this analysis are provided by
the Waseda CALET Operation Center located at Waseda University.
