Nuclear response drill at Scripps Hospital

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - First responders are being put to the test Wednesday at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla.

An emergency drill looked and felt like the set of an action movie.

The drill simulated the emergency response to a nuclear threat or a bio-terrorism attack.

A special response team from the National Guard flew in on Blackhawk helicopters to work with several San Diego rescue agencies and the hospital.

The teams suited up, assessed injuries and trained to work together.
