“Code Silver” biological, chemical terrorism training exercise held

The 105th Airlift Wing at Stewart in conjunction with police, fire and emergency response agencies from Orange, Putnam, Dutchess and Rockland Counties participated in an eight-hour Biological and Chemical Terrorism training exercise today called “Code Silver.” Exercise “Code Silver” was a medically focused tabletop seminar chartered by the Air Force Surgeon General. It was designed to help the United States Air Force achieve its goals for incident response, installation force protection, and to strengthen relationships with emergency responders throughout the local community. More than 100 participants were involved in the exercise. “Since 9/11 the military, to include the Air National Guard, has taken a proactive stance in regards to homeland security. The program exercises personnel in a variety of chemical and/or biological situations, which allows them to work through the issues interactively. This type of training encourages the design of more effective emergency response plans and procedures,” said Brig. Gen. Dana Demand, 105th Airlift Wing Commander. Full Story
