The Cayman Islands Cadet Corp and Cayman Islands Red Cross conducted extensive field exercises over the weekend. Hazard Management Cayman Islands and the RCIPS Air Operations Unit also participated in the activities.

In total about 60 people took part in the exercises which involved camping overnight in Barkers. At one point the Cadets and Red Cross volunteers had to cross a dyke carrying their backpacks and supplies (with water over their chests). Boat explosions involving kayak rescues, a simulated earthquake that necessitated an air drop of first aid supplies from the helicopter, and even a real medical emergency meant that the Cadets and volunteers were seriously tested.
