Multiple Agency Drill

Today Volunteers and DES Career Staff from Company 11, along with multiple surrounding agencies participated in a large scale Search and Rescue Exercise (SAREX). The drill was conducted between Dam 3 and Lander Boat Ramp on the Potomac River (approximately 15 miles of river), along with multiple land rescues simulated farther inland around these areas.

Water, land, and air rescue crews were dispatched to various “calls” throughout the day, simulating a large flood event, with additional catastrophic events happening throughout due to the flooding. Participant skills were tested at all levels today and many lessons learned with the goal in mind to better prepare for future incidents.

We would like to say Thank You to all those who spent countless hours working and preparing to make this event possible. #training #emergencypreparedness
