6/30/2010 - Airmen with the 628th Medical Group decontaminate a victim during a mass casualty exercise held on Joint Base Charleston, S.C., June 25, 2010. The exercise simulated the explosion of a ?dirty bomb? at a base softball field which caused 100 simulated casualties. A dirty bomb is a chemical-type weapon that combines radioactive material with conventional explosives. The weapon contaminates the area around the explosion with radioactive material.
