TZMD operators participated in a multiagency mass casualty evacuation and asset consolidation exercise.
Simulated casualties were triaged and first aid administered at collection points before critical cases were evacuated by helicopter to area hospitals. TZMD operators assembled at takeoff points to lead emergency responders onto helicopters to consolidate response efforts at forward command centers.
Clear for takeoff!
The exercise involved hundreds of volunteers, including military, police, firefighters, medical responders, social workers, CERT members, search and rescue personnel, community leaders, administrators, and trainers.
