During the second stage of a simulated emergency, known as Mode 4, one M-113 armored carrier leaves Launch Pad 39A while a second waits for another passenger. The carriers are being used to transport workers simulating astronauts and others to a triage area. The emergency exercise began at the 195-foot level of Launch Pad 39A. The KSC rescue teams are practicing emergency procedures in the unlikely scenario of a mishap on the pad during a launch sequence. The exercises are standard training procedures to assess and prepare emergency personnel, procedures and hardware. Photo credit: NASA/Jim Grossmann
