Indiana Prepares For Disaster

How well is Indiana prepared to deal with a catastrophic event?  

Local, state and federal agencies will be put to the test during a two-week mass disaster training exercise starting Monday.  

More than 5,000 military and civilian personnel will be involved.  

The exercise provides an opportunity to practice capabilities in responding to catastrophic events in major metropolitan areas. Training will include urban and aerial search and rescue missions, simulated decontamination operations, airlift, and medical training, among many other operations.

Locations for the exercise will include Camp Atterbury, Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, and the Indiana Government Center in downtown Indianapolis. 

The entire exercise runs through August 7. Indiana State agencies mainly will participate from July 21-25.
