The Washington County Local Emergency Planning Committee further discussed details for the county-wide exercise next month. The event will be held at the Washington County Fairgrounds the morning of October 12th with area ambulance, public safety officials, Washington Public Health, and Washington County Hospital and Clinics involved.

The LEPC also discussed and reviewed the Emergency Support Function 8 document. The document had been made available for department heads to review and suggest revisions in June and due to a cancelled meeting, the original document was submitted to the state by Emergency Management Coordinator Larry Smith before the August 30th deadline. A revised document may be submitted at a later date.
