Community disaster response drill scheduled for July 24
Gundersen Boscobel Hospital and Clinics will coordinate and lead a community disaster response drill on Wednesday, July 24.
The drill involves a simulated school bus incident in the Boscobel Industrial Park. Members of the Boscobel Volunteer Fire Department, Boscobel EMS and Boscobel Police Department will participate in the drill. Area residents will simulate patients and others who need to be evacuated.
The simulated incident, which is expected to last approximately two hours, will deliver extensive training, provide opportunities for all involved to practice and refine disaster response skills and help ensure local disaster preparedness and readiness is appropriate in the event of a major emergency. The drill includes emergency planning and reviews with all agencies that respond to emergencies in the Boscobel area.
