Tennessee National Guard earned points for completing the activity: Host a local mock emergency.

In May 2016, the Tennessee National Guard hosted a full scale ice storm response exercise with our interagency partners in Coffee and Grundy County. Nearly 1,000 Soldiers joined forces with Coffee County Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, Tennova Healthcare Harton, Tennova Healthcare Shelbyville, Tennessee State Parks, Coffee County EMS, Tullahoma PD, Manchester PD, TEMA, Maury County Search and Rescue, and Williamson County Amateur Radio Emergency Service Search and Rescue. Exercise highlights included the evacuation of 80 role player patients from Tennova Harton by air and ground, SAR at South Cumberland State Park involving 130 searchers from five different agencies, multiple search aircraft, and hoist evacuation of mock patients, infrastructure damage assessments, the establishment of a Point of Distribution (POD) for food and water, and the exercise of Coffee County's alternate EOC site.
