Chief Superintendent Chris McKeogh, said: This exercise provides a great opportunity for all of those involved to look at procedures in place for an emergency such as this and put them into action. This way, we can evaluate more effectively where we need to further develop our plans and procedures.
Today’s exercise is a unique opportunity to play a key role in an international project alongside a large number of other local and international agencies and organisations.
