Disaster Response Drill

Air Force personnel late last month concluded participation in a major training exercise in Honduras. Airmen operating out of Soto Cano AB, Honduras, as part of US Southern Command’s Joint Task Force-Bravo, took part in the annual disaster-response drill sponsored by COPECO, the Honduran equivalent of FEMA, from July 23-25. The exercise simulated a response to areas devastated by heavy rains and flooding and dealing with the pending arrival of a hurricane. (Soto Cano report by TSgt. John Asselin)
