Rocky Mountain Ham Radio and several ARES districts participated in the NDMS 2012 Mountain Move exercise at DIA and many local area hospitals on May 16 2012.  Several of our members were stationed in the Communications Trailer at DIA’s Signature Flight Support Center near the main terminal at DIA.  We also had many members spread out through local area hospitals accepting transport information for ground ambulances and medivac helicopters that were being flown from DIA to these hospitals carrying mock disaster victims from a small town hit by an EF4 tornado in Western Kansas.  The ARES teams were the only point of contact from the triage area to the hospitals.

The exercise was a success for ARES integration into the operations of the Veterans Administration and local first responders.  For photos of the event, look here.
