Training to make the best out of the worst


Piqua city manager Gary Huff, right, addresses assembled emergency management and first responder personnel at the Piqua Power Plant on Thursday morning. The group is spending the day running table-top training exercises in their continuing effort to be prepared in case of a disaster in the Piqua area. One of the exercises being tested is a scenario involving the catastrophic failure of area dams or a natural disaster involving high water. The group runs the exercise as if it were happening for real and looks for ways to perform with a maximum of efficiency and safety in the event of a real disaster. (Mike Ullery | Daily Call)
