Minneapolis, MN area responders that were dispatched to the bridge collapse on I-35 had been training and exercising in preparation for a large scale response for years. So when the I-35 bridge collapsed without warning with 160 people on the bridge killing 13 and injuring 121 others, they were ready.

I took many courses from TEEX-NERRTC over the years that helped me in the response.
