What I Did on my Summer Vacation, Part 1

I'm back from four days at FEMA summer camp; a mobilization exercise for my US&R team (MA-TF1). Last Monday night between eight and eight we processed about 350 patients (role players) with the help of a National Guard CERFP team and a DMAT. Not exactly like real life; by the time a FEMA US&R team gets deployed, local public safety assets will have sorted out the walking wounded and other easily-accessible victims. Still, it was an interesting exercise and my first opportunity after a year of training to see how the team works in the field.

As part of my role with MA-TF1, I photographed the event along with several other Technical Information Specialists. On our return, I was asked to produce this slide show. I sorted through more than 3,200 photographs collected during the exercise to come up with these 119 images.
