The exercise, titled Vital Connections, ran from April 3rd to 5th at Salem’s Fairview Training Center and tested how agencies communicate with one another using mobile equipment. PBEM participated by bringing the bureau’s communications trailer to the event (see photo to the right). During a real emergency, the trailer could be deployed to support emergency responders.
