Fort Hood Soldiers Train for Nuclear Decontamination on Coryell Health Campus

Coryell Health will be hosting Fort Hood soldiers over the next two days, as they do simulation training in preparation for deployment. As of this morning, Army North active duty army has started pre-deployment certification outside the Coryell Health EMS building. They will be simulating decontamination, specifically nuclear, radiological exposure. “We have always had a great relationship with our Fort Hood neighbors and provide any assistance they need when preparing soldiers for deployment. This specific training will have the active duty soldiers in hazmat suits and with the heighted concerns about Corona virus, we wanted to let our community know that what we have going on here is a training,” stated Jeff Mincy, Coryell Health EMS Director/Patient Experience.
