Emergency responders from Alamance County Fire Marshal’s Office, Office of Emergency Management, EMS, Rescue Squad, Central Communications, City of Burlington Fire Department, Police Department, Emergency Management, Communications, along with Alamance Regional Medical Center Emergency Department Staff and Cone Health Emergency Management will participate in an Exercise on February 18th. The exercise will begin at 6:30 A.M. and Last until 9:00 A.M. and should have little to no effect on any day to day activities.
This exercise is designed to test the response of local law enforcement agencies, fire departments, emergency management and hospital teams as they deal with a simulated bus wreck. This type of scenario will test each department’s ability to respond to the potential for multiple patients from a single incident. Each agency will have the opportunity to identify areas of strength and weakness so that they may be better prepared to serve the citizens of Alamance County.
