That largest exercise in Arizona history wrapped up last weekend, but now the work begins. Vigilant Guard featured a pseudo tropical storm, flooding and a nuclear bomb blast in downtown Phoenix. Arizona cities, counties, state and federal agencies participated in the exercise – testing emergency and evacuation plans, as well plans to transport and prioritize patients. 5,000 participants were working in health care – all 15 county health departments, tribes, 82 hospitals – to name a few. 50 folks from ADHS worked at the Health Emergency Operations Center and the State Emergency Operations Center. Thanks to all of you who participated and continue working to make sure any gaps we found will be fixed for the future!
