Aroostook County Tabletop Exercise

 

July 24, 2009

 

On July 22, 2009, a tabletop exercise took place at the Houlton Regional Hospital. Participants included the staff of the Houlton Regional Hosptial, Houlton Fire Department, Houlton Police Department, Town of Houlton, American Red Cross, Aroostook EMS, Aroostook County Emergency Management Agency, and Maine Emergency Management Agency. This exercise is to prepare participants for an upcoming full scale exercise this fall.

The exercised incident involved a truck verses car accident with an unknown smoke substance coming from the truck. Agencies had to work around the potential hazardous material to rescue the victims involved in the accident.

Aroostook EMA designed the discussion based exercise. Several photos have been uploaded to MEMA's page on Facebook.

Mainly, this exercise reminded the agencies to take a look at their plans to make sure they are responding in accordance to their plans.

For more information on exercising your plan, contact your County Emergency Management Agency or Maine Emergency Management Agency.
