Disaster Drills Upcoming

Disaster Drills Upcoming

The Heartland Chapter has been invited to participate in two disaster drills this year. The city of Omaha will conduct training designed around weapons of mass destruction . This dovetails with recent instruction from the Defense Department.

The second drill, sponsored by Offutt AFB will exercise the National Disaster Medical System, which has been developed to ensure that the U-S is prepared to respond medically to all types of mass casualty emergency situations.
