Douglas County drill scaled back

Authorities in Douglas County are reducing the size a planned for an emergency disaster drill scheduled for later this month.

Emergency Management Agency Director Joe Victor said the tornado exercise will be primarily based in Garrett.  He said the reduction was necessary to better facilitate the drill and prepare all parties involved for an emergency.

Anyone who wants to volunteer in the drill can contact Douglas County EMA up until Monday at 253-9538.  The drill will take place on July 27th.
