I heard that as it was beginning and just assumed it was a drill because of the way everyone involved was talking, just didn't sound like an emergency.

TRIAGE

1-a system of assigning priorities of medical treatment based on urgency, chance for survival, etc.

I wish there was a way to learn of all these training exercises in advance. I would of really liked to see & hear the Blackhawk helicopters training on landing at Presbyterian hospital the other day. Did anyboby see or monitor it?

Just a drill when I heard AMR and Pridemark and DG involved that was pretty easy to figure out. Triage is french for "sorting".

Another key was when command was requesting additional units and getting bed status updates it was from another mobile unit and not Adcom.
