More than 100 agencies from several different jurisdictions are taking part in a terrorism attack drill on Friday, the largest ever performed in Denver. The mock terror drill, Operation Mountain Guardian, will simulate four coordinated terrorist attacks in the Denver metro area, according to
Fox31. Operation Mountain Guardian is modeled after the tragic Mumbai, India terrorist incident from Nov., 2008
The locations of the exercise are:
[ ]Park Meadows Mall]Smedley Elementary School
[ ]Denver Union Station]Community College of Aurora (Lowry Campus)
[ ]Denver International Airport]Sky Ridge Medical Center
[ ]Denver Health Medical Center]University of Colorado Hospital
[ ]Catholic Charities (NW Denver)]Sports Authority Field at Mile High
The exercise is meant to test regional first responders during a terrorist-driven catastrophic scenario.
“Exercise play” will occur at the four primary sites and DIA.
Catholic Charities and Sports Authority Field at Mile High will participate in an administrative fashion to test student/teacher processing activities.
Sky Ridge Medical Center, Denver Health Medical Center, and University of Colorado Hospital will participate for the purpose of testing medical surge capabilities and communicating within Incident Command.
The exercise is a Homeland Security Grant funded event made possible due to grant funding from the Department of Homeland Security through FEMA Region VIII and the State of Colorado Governor’s Office of Homeland Security.
Couldnt post the whole article. Some of the text just wont show up. I have been hearing some pretty crazy things about this event. Do you guys think something may go down in near future? I heard buses of school kids were being brought to a Denver stadium but this is from one source which I think is unreliable. Anyone in Denver saw anything a little awkward?
