South Carolina Air National Guard helps state prepare for hurricane season

Firemen and paramedics from Georgetown County Fire/EMS, respond to an exercise scenario that involved a hard landing with casualties aboard a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter, supporting the South Carolina Helicopter Aquatic Rescue Team (SC-HART) from the South Carolina Army National Guard, at the Georgetown County Airport on June 3, 2014 to participate in a hurricane preparedness exercise with local emergency first responders to kick-off the first week of the hurricane season. Soldiers and Airmen from the South Carolina National Guard work side-by-side with the S.C. Emergency Management Division and first responders from local emergency agencies to effectively respond to any hurricane that may threaten the state. The exercise scenario involves a hurricane post-landfall response between federal, state and local agencies, which includes training in communications and first responder skills, with a focus on how to better protect and assist citizens during emergency situations.
