There is a lot of activity at Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue today but there is no reason for concern. Rick Esparza is the Medical Readiness Planner with Offutt and says they are holding their annual major accident response exercise today.
This year’s scenario is a plane that crashes into a softball tournament. There will be many ambulances on the road taking “patients” to participating hospitals. There will be several helicopters landing and taking off from Offutt transporting victims to hospitals as well. Several medical response teams are also taking part.
Offutt Air Force Base is required to conduct this drill once a year.
