Citizen disaster exercise Saturday

Charles T Wallace, Deputy Director of Emergency Management for Grays Harbor County has announced a Citizen Disaster Exercise, beginning at noon, Saturday in the lower parking lot at Grays Harbor College in Aberdeen.

“We’ll be setting up shelter, mass feeding, medical and communication sections,” Wallace said in a press release. “If your group has anything to add to the set up, please bring it. It will be based upon an incident where many groups and individual citizens mobilize to Grays Harbor College to assist with an assembly area following a disaster event. All are welcome to participate.”

“If you or your group is interested in participating,” Wallace continued, “please e-mail me at with the approximate number who will be attending. We will be feeding all who attend at the end and need a number to be sure we have enough food for all.”
