  • The training and the drill bring together the major responders, testing real-time inter-agency communication and coordination at all levels of these organizations, especially the Incident Command Structure and its various agencies, and the private sector and citizen groups. The drill pushes the medical response system to handling extreme scenarios, and compels the physicians and medical staff to prioritize care to maximize the savings of life and limbs, under duress. GEMEx will also train in monitoring and evaluation in state of-the-art international tools developed for evaluating disaster drills.
