On June 15, the Madison Township Fire Department participated in a multi-agency training exercise at Rickenbacker International Airport that simulated a mass casualty event. Crews practiced medical evacuation, emergency triage, aircraft fire suppression, and many more important skills. Over 140 volunteers acted as victims with injuries in varying degrees of severity. The agencies involved included the Madison Township Fire Department, Rickenbacker Fire Department, Ohio National Guard, Columbus Regional Airport Authority Police, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Box 15, American Red Cross, Franklin County EMA & Homeland Security, Franklin County & Columbus Public Health, Air Evac, and COTA. Chief Robinson has approved the photo use, and says thank you for reaching out. “The exercise was a great success,” said Madison Township Fire Chief Derek Robinson. “It was well organized and all of the participating entities worked well together. A special thank you to the Madison Township Fire Department crews that handled the EMS sector of the event and to Assistant Chief Adams for his many hours of preparing and helping organize the event.”
