FA-HUM Exercise in El Salvador -as real as it gets

Jhonny Ramos, Comandos De Salvamento, applies moulage to Bessy Idealma Garcia Saldana, a volunteer "victim" May 12 as part of a FA-HUM field training exercise in El Salvador. The scenario involved a school bus colliding with a van that carried hazardous materials on the busy Pan American Highway. The victims were actually 25 police cadets in training and the exercise tested El Salvadorian first-responders response time, procedures and collaboration with other agencies. FA-HUM, a disaster preparedness and humanitarian two-week exercise takes place in El Salvador from May 5-16. The SOUTHCOM-sponsored exercise includes command post and field exercises for not only El Salvador but about a dozen other countries from Central, North and South America. Army South is the executive agent.
