A multi-agency training exercise will be conducted next week in Salina.
According to the Saline County Emergency Management Office, the exercise is called “Crash Site”. It will involve local, state, and federal emergency response partners.
Personnel and equipment will be deployed to test response efforts, mutual aid requests, and interoperability. All involved in this exercise will face realistic incident-specific challenges that will test the basic elements of crisis operations and plans in a stressful and realistic environment.
Citizens within Salina can expect see increased responder activity being utilized to fulfill the goal of the exercise and do not need to be alarmed. Services to members of the community should not be affected by any element of this exercise.
This is an excellent opportunity for local, state, and federal responders to train together to better prepare for a response in a real emergency situation.
The exercise is next Thursday, September 19th, at the Salina Regional Airport.
