Emergency Responders Prepare for the Vanguard 23-2 Exercise
Local, state and federal personnel and equipment lined up on North David Street by Fire Station No. 1 on Tuesday morning, while other response teams were preparing elsewhere in Natrona County for a week-long series of disaster events.
The Wyoming National Guard is overseeing the first-responding agencies to test their coordination, capabilities and communications in the exercise dubbed "Vigilant Guard 23-2."
Casper Fire-EMS engineer and spokesman Toph Steinhoff said the individual events are more than just what local agencies could do.
But he and many of those involved with Vigilant Guard 23-2 didn't know to what they would be called to, Steinhoff said. "We'll just have to roll with the punches."
