Saving lives through the sky

Tech Sgt. Mike Nagel, medical technician with the 146th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron out of Channel Island Air National Guard Station, Calif., interacts with role-playing patients while conducting patient evacuations during Alaska Shield 14 here, March 31, 2014. The Air National Guard worked closely with the Army National Guard to conduct the training, which took place on a C-130 Hercules. Alaska Shield 14 is an exercise that involves federal, state, local and military agencies, designed to test response and coordination efforts during a disaster and is modeled after the 1964 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated much of South Central Alaska including the city of Valdez.
