Exercise Cape - 6th March 2016

999 teams trained at a fake Solihull car and train smash alert; the 'disaster' scene was a training exercise to keep skills honed!

It looked like the scene from disaster movie as emergency services raced to rescue passengers from an horrific train and car smash.

MROC 4x4 Response were involved along with paramedics, police officers and firefighters, all working together tirelessly to ensure the safety of the blood-soaked survivors.

Yet this was not real life "but a training exercise to ensure the emergency services will be ready and equipped to deal with a genuine scenario".

'Exercise Cape' took place at a level crossing in Bentley Heath, Solihull, on Sunday, organised by Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Councils emergency planning team. A spokesman said: 'Exercise Cape' involved volunteer 'victims', to bring realism to the exercise, to test the emergency response as if it were a real incident.

Residents and train passengers may well have seen 'injured' volunteers being put into ambulances and other emergency vehicles attending - but any injuries were fake.

Events such as Exercise Cape make sure the emergency plans work, that staff are given experience of carrying out the plans using a practical example and that equipment is tested in a real-world situation. During the scenerio, emergency service workers tweeted regular updates with pictures from the incident. Motorists and residents were pre-warned and told to expect disruption.

Pauline Higgins

It is with regret that I have to tell you that my mom, Pauline Higgins, passed away on Monday.She had been suffering for the last 10 months with Ovarian Cancer.

We would appreciate it if you could pass this message onto other members of the MROC that remember her.

She always enjoyed her time with the MROC, and often talked about the people, outings, trials, etc.
