Learning the Ropes

Under the watchful eye on an instructor from the Oklahoma based Response International Group, Spc. Robert Hodge from Dayton, works to hoist a simulated casualty up a wall, July 9, at Camp Sherman in Chillicothe, Ohio. Hodge, a member of the Chillicothe based 1194th Engineer Company, is learning the basics of rope rescue as part of the unit’s two week annual training. When complete, Hodge and the more than fifty other soldiers from the 1194th who participated in the training will have completed their first steps to become members of the search and extraction team of the Ohio National Guard’s Homeland Response Force. The Homeland Response Force is one of 10 organizations nationally that can respond to a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear disaster.
