Entry Description
Exercise Assists Agencies with Coordination
Pike Township Fire and EMS, IDHS District 6, National Guard

Local, district and military units held a mass casualty full-scale exercise on September 7. Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) District 6, the Indiana National Guard Chemical, Biological, Nuclear, Radiological and high-yield Explosive Enhanced Response Force Package (CERF-P) Unit, and Pike Township Fire and EMS participated in the exercise.

The exercise simulated a mass casualty incident and tested the integration and communication across differing agencies, as well as the ability of local operations to manage outside assets. The premise of the exercise was a county’s assets were overrun by the number of injured during an event and additional assistance was requested assistance from the State of Indiana. In turn, the State Emergency Operations Center requested both District 6 and military assets.

The exercise was created through interagency cooperation, among IDHS District 6, National Guard and Pike Township, with IDHS assisting in planning and logistical support.
