Full Scale Community Preparedness Exercise

.




On Thursday, April 12, 2018 between 8 a.m. and 12 noon, hospitals in Orange, Seminole and Lake Counties, along with the Central Florida Disaster Medical Coalition, Orange County Public Schools, and multiple other agencies will execute a full-scale disaster preparedness exercise. The exercise will take place at multiple hospitals throughout Central Florida and will include hundreds of students acting as victim volunteers and dozens of emergency workers and volunteers.

.

The goal of the exercise is to prepare the community, medical professionals, emergency response personnel, schools, and law enforcement to respond to a catastrophic incident should it take place in Central Florida.

.

On this day, we will simulate complex, coordinated terrorist attacks resulting in hundreds of victims who will be made up to simulate injuries. Should a citizen see or hear about this exercise and call your station, please note this information. The goal is to make Central Florida the safest place possible to live, work and recreate.

.

This exercise is being sponsored by the Central Florida Disaster Medical Coalition.
