Full Scale Emergency Exercise

Airport Exercize 03-06-2019_34

 

On Mar 6, 2019 The Elderville Lakeport VFD participated in a Full Scale Emergency Exercise at the East Texas Regional Airport that was Hosted by the airport and Gregg County Sheriffs office. In addition to Elderville Lakeport VFD, Kilgore FD, Longview FD, Champion EMS, Hopkins County EMS, Flight For Life, Longview CERT, Area Hospitals, and others all participated in this drill. 

 

The goal of an exercise like this is to improve the readiness of the departments that participate as well as highlight any deficiencies to help us improve out response to a major mass casualty incident. Dozens of volunteer "patients" are distributed at a scene and the various agencies are tasked with locating, triaging and transporting the casualties as well as dealing fire, or other hazards that are presented with the scenario.
