Chinese soldiers from the People's Liberation Army will take part in a "disaster management exchange" on Oahu next month with soldiers from U.S. Army Pacific and the Hawaii Army National Guard.
The Army Corps of Engineers and representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency also will participate in the Nov. 12-14 exchange.
The two countries will work side by side to respond to injuries from a simulated collapse of a building due to a typhoon, an official said. Role players will be used in the exchange at Marine Corps Training Area Bellows.
