Wednesday, May 4, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2 Letter to the editorThe Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb 4, 1944.

And thank you to all of the spectators who made the event enjoyable. It’s hard and thankless work standing in the baking sun to hand someone else a drink of cold water, or to videotape the race, or to keep track of the laps and time, but the athletes certainly appreciate it. The water stops, especially the one on 9th street, with kids jockeying for position to keep us hydrated, probably kept some of us out of the hospital. The support from the spectators was also very welcome. Cheers, clapping and motivating words make all the difference when you’re out of gas and ready to quit – it certainly made a difference to me by encouraging me to perform much better than I had in training for the race. The RustMan is a special event because there are so many special people on Kwajalein who support it so well. Thanks.Mark Daugherty Kwaj logicAre you participating in Kwajalympics?

Wednesday, May 4, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglassmale or female open, for men or women 19–39; male or female youth, for males or females 18 and under; male or female master, for men or women 40 and older. The youngest contestant this year was Chris Berlind, 16. He completed the triathlon in 2:35: 44, 15 minutes off of his time from last year. The oldest contestant was 55-year old Dennis Lampiasi, who is on temporary duty on Kwajalein. Athletes who didn’t want to compete in all three categories formed teams, splitting the events. The “Off The Record” team of Brian Brewster, Charles Greenbaum and Mark Daugherty with a combined time of 2:06: 06 won the team category, with Daugherty’s blistering: 40: 29 10-kilometer run breaking the re-cord for a team run. Twenty-four athletes “ate the whole enchilada by themselves,” according to Sholar. Three couples competed in the three-event RustMan: Brent and Krystal Peterson, Bill and DeAnn Brower and Rick and Kathy Ann Funk.Sholar said that Krystal’s 2:25:18, secconsensus favorites. We all know that Thomas is very capable, but he did not seem interested [in the competition], or to be training much,” said Bob Sholar, RustMan race director. “Hell, after the swim I was happy to still be alive and with only a few sea critters happily swimming in my lungs so I had bigger worries than six minutes. The inverse of sh out of water comes to mind,” Cardillo said describing the task of overcoming the leaders.The RustMan is a 1-kilometer swim, 42kilometer bike race and 10-kilometer run.“I’m heavily biased, but I think RustMan is far more than an endurance competition, it’s one of the best annual acts of community on Kwajalein Island,” Sholar added. Sharon Greenbaum took the women’s category with a time of 2:22:16, she was third overall. According to Sholar, this year’s eld of competitors is smaller than during peak participation years. This year there were 24 individuals and 10 teams. In 1998, a peak year, there were 32 individuals and 24 teams, putting 56 contestants on each course segment.

Cardillo turned on the speed in the nal leg of Monday’s RustMan triathlon to take rst place. Cardillo was down by 6 minutes before starting the 10-kilometer run. Cardillo’s time of 2:17:44 topped second place and last year’s champion, Nick Perry, by more than two minutes. “The biggest surprise this year was Thomas Cardillo’s beating Nick Perry and Robert Guidi, the


Wednesday, May 4, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Mig Owens Assistant EditorHeart-stopping words…airplane crash, injuries, death… were uttered at 9:20 a.m. Saturday on Kwajalein. Words of comfort…response, aid, rescue…followed closely behind at 9:25 a.m. In a scenario used to test the island’s emergency response capabilities, an airplane en route from Honolulu to Guam crashed on the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll installation. At 9:30 a.m. of the reported 151 passengers and nine crew members, 42 were accounted for, 10 listed in critical condition, 21 injured, 11 con rmed dead and 118 unaccounted for. The incident prompted activation of the Emergency Operations Center by Maj. Craig Holton, USAKA/RTS Operations of cer. “The EOC is the focal point of all on-island emergency response efforts of this magnitude,” explained Holton, “and all the information from the eld is passed to the EOC where the decisions are made and orders issued.” Holton said that during a mass-casualty exercise such as the one that took place Saturday, the re department and hospital are the key players. Their quick and effective response is what pleased Holton most about the exercise.USAKA exes response muscles in mas s He added that the Kwajalein Police Department has a supporting role and in some cases, such as a water rescue, participate in rescue efforts as well as secure the accident scene and other critical areas. Numerous not-so-obvious departments also play a role, as do many more behind the scenes. For instance, Holton said that in this accident scenario, there was a large amount of jet fuel on the ground. “We dispatched a hazardous material unit. The Water department also was noti ed to seal up the lens wells so they would not get contaminated with fuel run off. Automotive supplied additional vehicles and drivers to move the victims. The list goes on and on,” he said. Adding realism to this year’s exercise were approximately 30 volunteer victims, who donned makeup to re ect their prescribed injuries. “This year I was very lucky in that I was able to enlist the help of a great group of folks who volunteered to be exercise makeup artists,” Holton said. “These folks took time out of their day to attend a class taught by the hospital nurses and then came out early this morning and did an outstanding job making our victims look gruesome. This extra effort paid off by giving our medical personnel a more realistic looking victim to work on.” When asked how it feels to be tested, Jerry Leverett, assistant Fire chief and Incident commander, said that Michelle Barnett, re ghter/emergency medical technician, comforts Beka Ladd, a plane-crash victim suffering from hysteria. First responders line up and assess casualties on the air eld. Approximately 30 volunteer victims participated in Saturday's exercise.Leslie-Ana Curtiss, donning makeup indicating that the crash left her missing one eye, untangles a fellow victim's medical tag as they wait under the makeup tent for the start of the exercise.


Wednesday, May 4, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 s -casualty exerciseexercises such as Saturday’s are “the only way to do it,” adding that in the emergency services arena, these types of training sessions are encouraged. “It is the only way to know if your plan works. If it does, great. If not, now you know where to go next if any adjustments are needed,” he said. This exercise tested the department’s capabilities while splitting forces. Because the scenario called for part of the aircraft wreckage to be in the water, re and emergency services supported the police boat with rescue swimmers. Leverett said that searching for possible survivors in the open water took away from the ground rescue efforts. He explained that adjustments were made and “we carried on with the mission at task.” Operational organization and teamwork shone throughout, said Leverett, and “every obstacle was addressed with solid reasoning as it was presented to them.” “In mass casualty exercises, the element of surprise is worked in, to truly test you. Although we were tried by these elements, the crews gelled together as one,” he said. “I am very fortunate to lead such a veteran group of re ghters.” Leverett added that there was great response from the re prevention office, explaining that much of the laborintense tasking was handled by them when fire ghters were tied up with other responsibilities. Dr. Eric Lindborg, Kwajalein Hospital’s chief medical of cer, served as Red Team leader during the exercise, with responsibility for oversight of prioritizing the medical response. Lindborg said he was pleased with his area’s “excellent teamwork,” adding that there was a good review of procedures and staff call-in for the mass-casualty event. Lindborg also offered kudos to the re department personnel, who he said did a great job in triaging and transporting patients. “More simulated patients than in prior exercises emphasizes the challenges of making spur-of-the-moment decisions regarding what can and cannot be done for a given patient,” he said. By 10:42 a.m., the exercise had come to an end. Overall, Holton said that he thinks See EXERCISE, Page 12Photos by Mig OwensNancy Grant, R.N. and Tish Kuskulis, R.N. tend to Barry Childers as Maryia deBrum translates in the Pohnpeian language for the crash victim, who suffers from confusion after being hit in the head.

Chris Moulton catches his breath after nishing the bike event and tagging his team member to start the run.ond place in the women’s division, performance was one of the high points of this year’s competition. “She was only three minutes behind Sharon Greenbaum. No female has ever come that close to Sharon in seven years. Krystal did a 2:35:51 in her rst RustMan last year. That makes this year’s improvement over 10 minutes,” Sholar said. Sholar said that training for the annual event varies greatly. “Someone like Thomas Cardillo got away with very little triathlon training and still won, because he stays very t all the time and plays lots of sports that produce endurance. Several contestants had their training regimens broken by TDY business activity or family emergencies. Most of these relish the event so much that they competed anyway, knowing they almost surely would not be able to match prior best performances,” he added. The winner, Cardillo said, “I surf for the swimming portion (note the generous portion of otation in my swim training – that is for good reason), play a variety of sports for the run, and bike like mad between each of these activities. I try to stay pretty active throughout the year.” Cardillo added, “We have a great environment to play in so get out and be active throughout the year.” Chris Johnson, of the “Team With No Name” produced a 1:04:17 bike segment that has the better bikers on Island asking “How did he do that?” according to Sholar.The RustMan began as an idea tossed around at a back-yard barbecue in either 1979 or 1980, depending on who you ask. It was started as a mini-Ironman and is onefourth the length of the Hawaiian competition. “And of course, someone suggested the RustMan, because if it wasn’t going to be an Ironman and it was on Kwaj,” Sholar said.

Chinn, Clerk. an “A” was scored at Saturday’s exercise and response. “I think the planning team did a good job putting together a training event that effectively met the desired goal and the island emergency response elements provided great service and I, in turn, received some good training,” he said. Holton thanks all who participated in the training, including the volunteers, planners and support personnel. Lessons learned, according to Holton, include communication, as some emergency response elements need more powerful radio transmitting and recieving capability. Dennis Johnson, KPD chief, echoed the concern about communication and also intends to maintain a list of of cers’ special capabilities for future use in emergencies. According to Holton, the exercise also met the goal of determining the “breaking point” at which the number of victims would tax the re department and the hospital to the point that they would not be able to provide timely rescue services and medical care. “We now have a better understanding of the types of injuries and the numbers of those injuries that will cause serious problems,” he said. “Now, armed with this knowledge, we can begin developing techniques and procedures to mitigate these risks.”EXERCISE, from Page 5 Sun Moon Tides Sun rise/set Moon rise/set High Tide Low Tide Thursday 0632/1900 0359/1619 0220, 4.8' 0830, 1.3' May 5 1430, 4.9' 2040, 0.8' Friday 0632/1900 0440/1709 0300, 5.2' 0910, 0.9' May 6 1510, 5.0' 2120/0.7' Saturday 0632/1900 0522/1759 0330, 5.5' 0950, 0.7' May 7 1550, 5.0' 2150, 0.6'
