The Army’s 2916th Aviation Battalion stationed at National Training Center Fort Irwin, Calif., put on a simulated casualty training exercise at Barstow – Daggett County Airport in Daggett, Calif., Nov. 18. Personnel from Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow’s fire and emergency services participated in the training exercise. The training exercise simulated a midair collision of two helicopters and the execution of the unit’s emergency response plan. MCLB Barstow’s role in the exercise was practicing its mutual aid response plan, assisting with patient triage, and moving injured victims to airlift.
