An Army engineer assigned to the 178th Engineer Company from Fort Polk, La., carries a "survivor" through the wreckage of a collapsed parking garage July 26 during Vibrant Response 13, a major incident exercise conducted by U.S. Northern Command and led by U.S. Army North. During the exercise at the specialized disaster training facility, rescue technicians from the 178th Engineer Co. demonstrated their search and extraction capabilities by treating and evacuating "sick," "injured" and "contaminated" victims of simulated 10-kiloton nuclear detonation of a major Midwestern city.
