ELKRIDGE, Md., 5 April 2005. General Physics Corp. (GP) was chosen by New Jersey's Union County Division of Environmental Health and Emergency Management to provide a simulated bioterror attack exercise.
The one-day exercise and evaluation helped prepare top officials in Union County for TOPOFF, the federally-sponsored exercise designed to test the response capabilities of state, local and federal government agencies to a terrorist attack.
Local and state law enforcement, fire, emergency response, and health officials participated in the exercise which simulated a biological agent being released at numerous high school graduations, and familiarized the exercise participants to similar issues that will surface during TOPOFF.
GP and its strategic partner Ramsafe Technologies also assisted Union County in predictability modeling for bio-casualties and resource needs, information needed for this week's TOPOFF exercise.
GP's Homeland Security and Emergency Management services are designed to help organizations plan for incidents, respond appropriately, and mitigate the short- and long-term consequences of an emergency.
