Making Curry County accident free may be impossible, but the members of Gold Beach and Ophir fire departments – with assistance from Brookings, Port Orford, and Harbor fire departments – and employees of Curry General Hospital, Curry Medical Center and Cal-Ore Life Flight Ground and Air Ambulance put their recent training to the test in Saturday’s Mass Casualty Incident Response exercise.

The day began with a briefing offered by Cal-Ore General Manager Joe Gregorio, who was responsible for putting the exercise together, to let the departments know to what they would be responding: a two car accident at the old mill site on Jerry’s Flat Road, or a boiler explosion at the Ophir fire hall.

“We had two scenarios with 16 patients,” Gregorio explained. “Eight patients at the old mill site with one dead, and seven patients at Ophir.”
