The Christian County Emergency Management Agency will be hosting a countywide tabletop disaster drill at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium on Wednesday. The exercise is intended to better prepare all relevant parties in the county for handling the effects of severe weather.
Christian County Emergency Manager Mike Crews spoke with Regional Radio News and said many different agencies in the county will be there, as well as what the groups will be going over.
These kinds of exercises allow all of the various agencies to interact with one another so they know what to expect once severe weather strikes.
Participants will work their way through a simulated disaster within Christian County, and will have representatives from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and Morgan County Emergency Management to assist with the exercise.
