Guam simulates bioattack

Guam Homeland Security, the Department of Public Health and Social Services, the Office of Civil Defense and other government agencies in Guam have begun a strategic national stockpile full scale exercise known as Operation Pa’ti.
Operation Pa'ti simulates a biological terrorist attack. Specifically, the agencies involved in the exercise simulate what to do if terrorists spread anthrax on the island of Guam. The exercise is designed to test the public health capabilities of GovGuam, Pacific News Center reports.
They agencies have even practiced calling the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
"In the event that we do get attacked we need to practice and prepare for that and basically what it is there's real particular steps on how to prepare when to trigger requests to the federal government for emergency assets,” Patrick Lujan, a representative of the Department of Public Health, said, according to Pacific News Center.
Residents of Mangilao, Tamuning, Upper Tumon, Dededo and Yigo
have been advised of emergency response vehicles on the roadways and at various GovGuam facilities during the exercise.
The exercise includes a tabletop exercise testing GovGuam's response capabilities to the simulated attack, according to Alyssa Benito, a Homeland Security spokesperson. Operation Pa'ti began Tuesday and will take place over the course of four days, KUAM reports.
