Maine First-Responders jump to action

Firefighters from the Brunswick Fire Department survey the scene of a collapsed building at former Brunswick Naval Air Station in Brunswick, Maine, Tuesday morning. The incident is part of a large-scale civilian and military training exercise called Vigiliant Guard. During the next few days, first responders, emergency management personnel, homeland security teams and around 1500 National Guard soldiers from New England states will work together to overcome a series of natural and manmade catastrophes that culminate during a severe winter storm.
