I've been entertaining the the thought of setting up, and having our department host a large scale dissaster drill. I'd like to have a multiple agency event. I haven't really decided on a dissaster type. Any ideas are welcome. I don't want to spend hours, and hours planning, and meeting with our officers, just to have nobody show up!
Should I contact other agencies first to see if they would be interested?
What kind of costs would be involved?
Not sure where to start! Fire acadamy??
Type of drill?? Tornado, school boiler explosion, jetliner down???
The cars are a nice touch. I think we might try that. The only thing is cleaning up the mess afterwards. We would have to do a thorough job of cleaning it up so as not to cause damage to peoples' vehicles (i.e. flat tires from glass or metal that got missed). I would definately suggest that one!!!
Hi Cap, we do this drill alot for extrication practice. We normally always do this on a really big tarp. We have a couple 10x12 ft. tarps we center the vehicles up on. When we're finished, one of our guys uses his John Deere tractor with a loader bucket to upright the vehicles. We then put all the pieces back in the cars, and push them off the tarps. We all grab the sides of the tarp and center all the glass, and dump it into a trash can so we can dumpster it. Works real well, and leaves no mess at all, normally.
