0

First responders from the 6th Ranger Training Battalion, the 96th Civil Engineer Group Fire Department, 96th Security Forces Squadron, Okaloosa County Emergency Medical Services and Okaloosa Med Flight responded to a simulated mid-air helicopter collision and crash on the Eglin Air Force Base range. The realistic exercise with more than 20 injuries served to validate the 6 RTB’s mass casualty exercise procedures and their ability to work as part of a unified command. The exercise was held September 28. U.S. Air Force Photos by Ilka Cole.
