Several agencies are assisting with a Disaster Drill today in Hunt County.
A tornado disaster drill is underway as of 9am at the Hunt Regional Hospital in Greenville. A staged tornado scene was set up in a metal building behind the Greenville Hospital. Several patients were placed in different locations of the building. Hunt County EMS removed patients as if in a real emergency situation. Patients were then transported to different Hunt County hospitals with an overflow of staged victims entering the E.R.
This drill is done to keep our First Responders along with our hospital staff ready for any real disaster that may occur.
