BUTLERVILLE, Ind. - An Army Reserve search and rescue team from the 409th Engineer Company, Windsor, Colorado, searches for potential chemical contaminants during a train derailment search and rescue training exercise at Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, April 28. The teams, under close observation by Observer-Controller-Trainers, were evaluated on their ability to scan for chemical threats, evaluate and document casualties, provide basic medical assistance and evacuate casualties to a chemical decontamination site. MUTC offers a range of unique and realistic training environments, including a subway station, collapsed buildings and city environments, high-rise buildings and a flooded neighborhood, that allow first responders and search and rescue teams to train for real-world catastrophes, such as hurricanes and nuclear disaster.
