Mock Critical Incident Exercise

On Sept. 17, 2006, the Greenwood Mall in Bowling Green, Ky., hosted a mock critical incident exercise to help emergency response teams practice and train for emergency situations.

"Anytime you participate or conduct in reality based training it makes you very prepared for the real life situation of real crisis or real critical incident", said BGPD Officer Jerry Corbitt.

Also on site was the Air Evac Lifeteam to help practice in case of emergency where Stat Flight may need to be used.

Overall the exercise was a success and these departments will continue to do such exercises to stay on top of their training and knowledge of emergency situations.
