“Our training scenario included 3 bombs, 15 injured, 36000 gallons of ammonia release, 3 bad guys with hostages, simulated shelter for 50 evacuees, one biological lab producing weaponized avian influenza and 220 responders who restored safety in 4 hours,” said William Miller Deputy Special Operations Coordinator for the Ft. Myers Fire Department.  “The training exercise was conceived not only for practicing a mock terrorist attack, but lessons learned can be applied to many situations, from hurricanes to fires to gas spills,” he concluded.
