The DART team recently conducted a quarterly mock callout, not only for the learning experience, but a critique in procedures and equipment requirements. The motto for our training is “extreme challenge brings on knowledge”. What started out as a 7pm mobilization, turned into something much more sinister.
As darkness descended, the team quickly mobilized, distributing radios, flashlights, and assembled according to FEMA ICS protocols.
As the teams spread out, evidence of a gunfight started showing up.
As with all events, sometimes, surprises rear their head. Evidently, there was a another victim, shot in the chest and leg. The DART team quickly responded to not only stabilize the victim but transport him upstairs to emergency transport.
