Communications and Search and Rescue Exercise

GT CERT held a Communications and S&R Exercise on Saturday, March 20th at the Tampa Fire Recue Training Center. The exercise simulated a search and Rescue operation for a missing 7 year old boy "Tommy" (pictured). Five teams split up and systematically searched the TFR training grounds finding the "missing child" in less than 1 hour. There were 22 participants in attendance at the exercise.
