The gang was all there this week at the corner of Jones and West streets in downtown Raleigh, for a controlled collapse exercise with North Carolina Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Task Force 8. The 210-member team, one of 11 regionally located, all-hazard search-and-rescue teams in the team, is comprised of members from the Raleigh Fire Department, Cary Fire Department, Chapel Hill Fire Department, Durham Fire Department Wake County EMS, and Atlas Engineering. The three-day, 72-hour exercise was conducted at a structure scheduled for demolition. Read the entire press release. Or visit the official site for NCTF8. Photos are coming from Lee and Mike. Good work, all. Now go inside and get warm.
