Full scale disaster drill will take place in Douglas County

Posted:

In a few weeks it will look like a tornado ripped through Douglas County.

 

They are conducting a full scale disaster drill. Saturday July 27th they will stage the aftermath of an F2 tornado coming through the area of Atwood from South of Route 36 then east through Tuscola. Be sure to watch out for debris in those areas.

 

This drill will test the response and clean up to be prepared for a tornado or other disasters. If you would like to volunteer in the exercise call the EMA office at 253-9538.
