Rangers lead emergency response exercise
96th Civil Engineer Group firefighters and U.S. Army Capt. Roland Salazar, a physician’s assistant with the 6th Ranger Training Battalion, work to dislodge a simulated victim from the helicopter wreckage during the 6th RTB’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.
