Camp Hansen hosts bilateral disaster-preparedness exercise

Members of the Kin Town Office, Kin Town Fire Department, Ishikawa Police Station, Okinawa Prefectural Police and Marines from Camp Hansen stand in formation for the closing ceremony of a bilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief exercise Jan. 29 at Camp Hansen. “I think today went very well, but it is just a starting point,” said Maj. Andrew A. Merz, camp operations officer for Camp Hansen. “We are only going to get better from here and be able to bring in more capabilities. There will be more things the Marines can do and more things the local authorities can offer as well. We will be able to get to a more formal agreement in the future.” The exercise scenario, which was the first of its kind on Camp Hansen, was based on the aftermath of a devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami.
