CSEPP Gearing up for Big September 20th Training Exercise


Madison County Emergency Management officials are always working overtime to ensure that residents would be safe in the event that any disaster happens. Here in Richmond, the Emergency Operations Center and the Joint Information Center took part in one of their training exercises in an effort to gear up for the big exercise that will take place on September 20th. WBON-TV’s Marisa Hempel spoke to two Deputy Directors with CSEPP about what happened today, as well as what is in store next month.

One of the big improvements is a new text message alert system called IPAWS, which will send automated updates to all in the Madison County area in the event of a leak at the Bluegrass Army Depot, such as the simulation that occurred today.
