News Alert-National Disaster Drill
On Wednesday, May 18, 2011 starting around 8:00 am, several entities, including the Paragould Police and Fire Departments; the Greene County Rescue Squad and Arkansas Methodist Medical Center as well as others from multiple jurisdictions, will be participating in a national training exercise. We want those in Paragould, Greene County and the surrounding area to know that this is strictly a drill and that all PLWC properties, AMMC and other organizations involved will be operating as normal during this exercise.
Arkansas is one of 12 states participating in this drill and Greene County is one of 35 counties in the state to participate. This event will help train the appropriate personnel in responding to various disasters.
