Last updated on Tuesday, May 14, 2013

(DAVIESS COUNTY) - Today the Daviess Community Hospital, local emergency medical services, law enforcement departments and fire department will be taking part in a disaster drill for Region 10, an eleven county area in Southern Indiana.

The drill scenario is a disaster that occurs in Washington and will take place between 8 a.m. and noon. During this time there will be increased radio traffic on scanners, sirens and emergency vehicle traffic at the site of the staged disaster and in the area of the hospital.

The disaster drill allows for increased training and teamwork between local emergency agencies and the Daviess Community Hospital and better co-ordination of emergency services if an actual disaster does occur. The hospital thanks the public in advance for their patience and understanding during this drill.
