9/27/2012 - Senior Airman Tanya Schroeder, 81st Medical Operations Squadron, and Airman 1st Class James Rodriguez, 81st Aerospace Medicine Squadron, wrap the wound of a “victim” in the triage area before transporting him to the Keesler Hospital during a hazardous material exercise Sept. 27, 2012, at Keesler Air Force Base, Miss. In the scenario a routine delivery flatbed trailer transporting hazardous material is struck by a van transporting Airmen causing one of the containers to fall from the vehicle and rupture. The exercise helped prepare first responders in the event of a real-world incident. (U.S. Air Force photo by Kemberly Groue)
