Golden Guardian 2013

NALCO participated in Golden Guardian 2013, the most comprehensive state-level exercise series program in the country, on 15-May-2013.  The City of Berkeley Public Health Department Operations Center was supported by two NALCO members; UC Berkeley Tang Medical Center was supported by one member; and the City of Berkeley EOC was simulated by two other NALCO members.  Additionally contact was made with the State Department of Health in Richmond via another NALCO member.  Status messages and resaource requests were passed via a directed voice net.  A Medical Health Status Report was passed to the Alameda County EOC via both voice and packet radio.  Around a dozen internal messages were passed via packet radio as well.
