Global Dragon

A few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to go shoot an Air Force emergency manager training event known as Global Dragon. EM events are always a big bag of fun; typically involving hyper-talented individuals training to deal with truly awful situations.

Held at the Guardian Centers of Georgia, Global Dragon provides a refresher course for Airmen, allowing them to put their skills to use to identify live chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents and materials. Emergency management technicians from more than 20 individual units participated.
