The Washington County Local Emergency Planning Committee is holding their monthly meeting. Washington County Public Health Administrator Edie Nebel says this committee was formed to identify any communication gaps that have been identified when holding emergency exercises in the past. She says during their meeting this month, they will continue to have discussion related to mass communication needs and will view a demonstration for a Wireless Emergency Notification System. Nebel says this mass communication system has the capability to send out messages to many people in a short period of time. They are meeting tomorrow at 12:00 noon in the Washington County Hospital & Clinics Robert Nicola Conference Room.
