#GMVEMSC: FW: Major Exercise Opportunity for EMS and RTF

On Sunday, January 28th, GDAHA, MMRS, and Kettering Health Network are sponsoring “Dawn of a New Day,” an MCI exercise involving terrorism, an active shooter incident, and an IED. 

·         The exercise will be conducted at multiple locations including Sycamore Primary Care (the “incident scene”) and Sycamore Medical Center.

·         Exercise will begin for RTF and most law enforcement at approximately 0830

·         Non-RTF EMS will need to be in place by 0930.

·         Exercise will end by no later than 1330, and probably earlier.


There will be a command structure established under Miami Valley Fire District (IC; EMS; Triage, Treatment, Transport Officer, Communications Aide, etc.).  Personnel from other agencies may be used in some of those roles at the discretion of MVFD.

·         We need three to four staffed Medic Units. 

·         This exercise will also involve the Regional Rescue Task Force, and we need at least eight RTF personnel plus one RTFL for Unified Command.


Kettering Medical Center will provide EMS continuing education (CE) for the Dawn of a New Day exercise, as well as additional CE for personnel who complete the Player Pre-Brief Training.


We are also in need of EMS personnel as Controllers and Evaluators.  To be involved in any way for this exercise, just send an email to david.gerstner@daytonohio.gov.
