Alaska Vigilant Guard 2014, a full-scale disaster response exercise, kicked off at 10:10 a.m. today when a mock earthquake with the magnitude of 9.2 occurred in Jonah Bay in Prince William Sound, Alaska. Vigilant Guard is a component of the state-wide exercise Alaska Shield. The exercise simulates a large-scale earthquake and is designed to test state and local civil authorities capabilities. Orion(tm), a mobile system by Futurity, allows first responders to collect critical damage assessment data necessary for emergency agencies to coordinate and deploy resources. Alaska National Guardsmen from the 208th Construction Management Team and the 207th Engineer Support Platoon were notified that as part of the simulation the Governor of Alaska declared a state of emergency disaster, activated the National Guard and implemented the state emergency plan. Casey Cook, Emergency Manger, Mat-Su Borough Department of Emergency Services, addressed local responders and Alaska Guardsmen during a joint planning meeting held at the Central Mat-Su Fire Department, Station 6-5 (Cottonwood Public Safety Building). Available in High Definition.
