Ex UNIFIED RESPONSE (2019)
Six members of the Light Urban Search and Rescue team attended , a disaster-response exercise run by the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Facility, in Indiana. The team were invited to attend as part of Vancouver Fire and Rescue Service’s Heavy Urban Search and Rescue Task Force One (TF1). The scenario involved responding to a major earthquake which had caused significant structural damage. The facility included unique and realistic sites like a partially collapsed parkade, an underground subway station—complete with four cars—and many partially collapsed buildings.
