Pictured above, members of the Fairfax County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) participated in Alexandria CERT's first annual full scale exercise.
Also participating in the exercise were members of the Arlington CERT program, volunteers from the Red Cross, and students in Fairfax County Public School's Fire and Emergency Medical Sciences program.
The exercise was held to test the emergency response of Alexandria Community Emergency Response Teams 203, 205, and 207, in conjunction with the Alexandria Office of Emergency Management.
It provided a chance for multiple teams in the National Capital Region (NCR) to be victims in a simulated mass casualty environment and an opportunity to meet and work with local CERT members.
