On April 27th IL-IMT participated in a joint exercise with Emergency Management Assistance Team (EMAT) prior to the Illinois Emergency Services Management Association (IESMA) training summit held in Springfield. The venues included two trailers simulating IMT being located in cities of Harrisburg and Carbondale communicating with a southern Illinois EOC. The disaster was the result of a New Madrid Fault Earthquake. The EOC then communicated with the State EOC.

During two days in September, ten IMT members participated at a Caterpillar Facility Full Scale Exercise in Mossville.  IMT was among 26 organizations invited by the Peoria County Healthcare Preparedness Coalition to participate in the important event.  The simulated scenario was a commercial airliner crash landing on a nearby state highway and next to a large occupied Caterpillar office building. IL-IMT member Troy Erbentraut was the Exercise Planning Team Co-Director and was key in getting us invited and providing us a significant role in the event.
