Anyone participating in the Community Emergency Response Team or Washington County COAD have an opportunity to participate in an exercise to work together as part of a disaster planning and response team.  These exercises are designed specifically for organizations that work to support the disaster caused needs of community and neighborhood residents during and following a disaster.  The exercises cover different scenarios from earthquakes and flooding to tornadoes and wildfires.

This month’s exercise will deal with flood preparation and response.  Those wishing to take part in this exercise need to sign up by 8:00 Friday morning and the webinar is happening next Saturday from 8:00 to 3:00.
