WILSAR take part in Exercise Opus Resilience

Thursday 7th January 2016

Today, three members of WILSAR took part in Exercise Opus Resilience, a multi-agency table top exercise simulating a Mass Casualty Incident.

WILSAR Chair, Gail Leaman, Adrian Sawyer and Sandra Penfold, all trained Search Managers, joined teams of senior officers from the Police, Ambulance Service, Fire & Rescue, NHS hospitals, Environment Agency, Military and Search and Rescue to rapidly process information reports and decide response plans.

Whilst we hope that there’ll not be a Major Incident like a plane crash in Wiltshire, training and preparation is key to being able to respond.
