Plans for a disaster drill involving multiple agencies are in the works. The Washington County Local Emergency Planning Committee is organizing a mock emergency disaster to involve Washington County Public Health, Washington County Hospital and Clinics, area emergency management and various other county and emergency response agencies. Larry Smith, Washington and Keokuk counties emergency management coordinator says that it has been too long since holding a large scale drill. And Washington County Public Health Administrator Danielle Pettit-Majewski adds that it needs to be as realistic as possible. The tentative date for the drill is October 12th, however that is subject to change.
