Beaufort County Hosts National Guards Largest Ever Disaster Response Event

Written by  DRJ

As part of Vigilant Guard 2008, the South Carolina National Guard put on one of the largest disaster response training exercises in the history of the National Guard. This intensive three-day exercise included more than 2,000 National Guard soldiers and airmen from more than a dozen states, members of the newly formed Beaufort County Recovery Task Force, state and local firefighters, police officers, Red Cross volunteers and many others to demonstrate response capabilities in the case of a major disaster.
