The U.S. Army North Division trained throughout Davidson County this week to exercise their emergency response procedures.
Part of the training used Vanderbilt University Hospital’s (VUH) helipad to conduct touch-and-go landings with Blackhawk helicopters as well as military ambulances transporting simulated patients to the Adult Emergency Department.
The drills focused on incident preparedness in the event of a large scale-disaster. No actual patients were involved in the training, which had no impact on operations at VUH.
