Capitol Shield Mass Causality Field Training Exercise October 11-12, 2012.

Capitol Shield is shaping up to be one of the most challenging training opportunities to date.

On October 11 & 12, The Capital Shield Exercise events are occurring in DC at the Blue Plains Training Fire Academy from 0600-1500 (Prep to Clean Up). Our roles should be the same as last year. On both Thursday October 11th and Friday October 12th, Fairfax and Montgomery County CERT Teams will moulage 100 victims. Then, when the drill begins, we will be working with the Doctors, Nurses and Medics of the 166th Med Detachment to rescue and treat victims injured from a bomb blast and building collapse. We will also be receiving victims from the DC Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team.

We should come prepared to do search and rescue and some disaster first aide. We should bring our own water, food, sun screen, etc.

If you would like to attend, email Rich Hall at Please indicate which days you can be there. Once you sign up, Rich will provide the directions and information on parking.
