In May, MA-TF 1 joined several National Guard Civil Support Teams and the Barnstable County IMT to participate in Patriot Guard 2. A full Type I US&R team deployed from Beverly, MA to Cape Cod with two missions: The First mission was to conduct a night-time wide area search & rescue of a suburban neighborhood that had structural damage and radiation contamination. The second mission was to provide US&R support to a simulated car bomb exploded at the Sandwich Power Plant. Both missions were a success and provided a strong training environment for MA-TF 1. “We are prepared because we train the way we respond.”
