Guard Troops Complete Disaster Training

ORISKANY, N.Y. - More than 600 National Guardsmen from three states completed a five-day disaster exercise at the New York State Preparedness Training Center here May 2, and now serve as the new Region 2 Homeland Response Force (HRF).

The exercise tested all the capabilities of the HRF, which is made up of National Guard Soldiers and Airmen from New York, New Jersey and Puerto Rico. In the days leading up to the final evaluation, HRF troops -- suited up in full protective suits, masks, boots and helmets -- located mock victims in a simulated disaster site, decontaminated them, treated their injuries and evacuated them for further treatment.
