    Posted on November 6th, 2009 MA-TF 1 No comments

    MA-TF 1 had the opportunity to participate in the Vigilant Guard exercise that took place the week of November 1, 2009 in Tonawanda, New York. A full complement of 80 MA-TF 1 team members responded to the mock 5.9 Earthquake incident as part of the Massachusetts Joint Task Force, which included the Mass. National Guard CERF-P and CST.

    The training provided three rubble piles, including a simulated fully collapsed hospital with attached parking garage. Photos and a short video showing some highlights are below.
