A community wide disaster drill will be held in Carrollton on Wednesday. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross talk to Carroll County Memorial Hospital Chief Operating Officer Shannon Jordan:
The event will involve the Carrollton Fire Department, Carroll County Ambulance District, the Carrollton Police Department, Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, Carroll County Health Department, as well as various others.
“The drill is going to try to look and feel as real as possible,” said Jordan,” The reason that we’re not releasing the scenario upfront is so that everyone takes it as seriously as possible and act like it is truly a live event. We want all resources to coordinate. This drill looks to test communication internally for departments, externally, and interdepartmental.”
The disaster drill is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m.
