Disaster simulation held at ERHC

ST. MARYS - Hundreds of emergency responders converged on Elk Regional Health Center (ERHC) on Monday as part of a staged disaster event designed to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the hospital's emergency preparedness. The scenario staged Monday involved a tornado having struck the C-wing of Pinecrest Manor. During the drill, residents of Pinecrest Manor were transported to a designated section of the building, just as they would be in the event of an actual tornado touching down.
