Local Hospitals Testing Disaster Readiness

Don't be alarmed if you hear helicopters this morning.

Hospitals across Maryland will test their ability to respond to a mass-casualty terrorist attack today, and nearby and hospitals will participate.

The drill, which goes from 8:15 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, involves flying mock victims into the hospitals, which will cause an increase in helicopter traffic in the area. Normal hospital service will not be affected, however.
