Rangers lead emergency exercise
A simulated downed U.S. Army helicopter smolders while simulated victims lay injured nearby during the 6th Ranger Training Battalion’s annual mass casualty exercise Sept. 28 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. First responders from the 6th RTB, the 96th Civil Engineer Group Fire Department, 96th Security Forces Squadron, Okaloosa County Emergency Medical Services and Okaloosa Med Flight responded to a simulated mid-air helicopter collision and crash on the range. The realistic exercise with more than 20 injuries served to validate the 6 RTB’s mass casualty exercise procedures and their ability to work as part of a unified command.
