 First responders declare, 'We have the watch!'
 Embedding firefighters and EMTs into a SWAT response
 October 28, 2013
Dear PoliceOne Member,

Today we bring you exclusive coverage of Urban Shield 2013, the nation's largest multidisciplinary first responder training exercise and one of my favorite events of the year. My fifth Shield was without doubt the best one so far - an impressive array of scenarios and an international field of top competitors.

Read my coverage of the events, including a drill testing the incorporation of firefighters and paramedics into a SWAT response, and a focus on the forgotten heroes of the event: the volunteer 'victims.'

The goal of Urban Shield is "to present a multi-layered training exercise to enhance the skills and abilities of regional first responders, as well as those responsible for coordinating and managing large scale events." Mission accomplished.
