Wayne County Disaster Drill May 5th in Secrest Arboretum

Submitted by Cassie Sewell,

On Thursday morning May 5th the Wayne County Emergency Management Agency will be conducting an all-county full-scale exercise utilizing both the Secrest Welcome Center and surrounding areas. Gossard Rd will be closed during this event for the staging of rescue equipment. You will see emergency vehicles and personnel from all around Wayne County on campus during this time. This includes possible aircraft such as helicopters. At times they will have their emergency lights or sirens activated and roll players may be acting out scenarios where Fire/EMS/Police will respond. This will begin around 7AM and end in the afternoon. If possible, we ask that you avoid the area to help give the safety personnel participating room to operate. If your normal daily route takes you through that area, please plan alternative travels for the day.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation, should you have any specific questions or concerns please contact Seth Walker.439 or Chad Stanton.70
