NIHRAC Field Exercise on NIH Campus

Post date: Sep 14, 2012 7:03:57 PM

NIHRAC will conduct a field-communications exercise on the NIH campus in the morning of September 21st, 2012. Station setup work will start at 8:30am on the west lawn of the NIH Fire Station building 51. This event is in preparation for the support that NIHRAC will provide to the Bethesda hospitals during a disaster drill that will take place in October. We will simulate the provision of communications services to emergency responders during a disaster event that has severely disrupted telephone, cell and Internet services in the region. Visitors to the field exercise are welcome, but are encouraged to visit the station starting around 10am, so we can have the necessary space to move and setup the equipment safely. The station will be dismantled around noon.
