Abbott Hosting Emergency Management Exercise
Thursday May 08, 2014 7:09pm
Centreville, MI

(STURGIS) – If you see fire and police personnel around Abbott Nutrition on Friday, please do not panic. It's just an exercise.

St. Joseph County Emergency Management Director Scott Hopkins says a county wide emergency management exercise will be conducted at Abbott Nutrition on Friday between 8 AM and 12 PM.

Participating organizations will be Abbott Nutrition, specifically their emergency response team; the Sturgis Police and Fire Departments; Life Care Ambulance; Sturgis Hospital along with West Michigan Air Care. Support personnel are Sturgis Public Schools transportation; Sturgis High School drama club students and St. Joseph County Central Dispatch.

Hopkins says the fictional event will simulate the after effects of a tornado hitting Abbott Nutrition and will involve multiple patients with varying levels of injuries. Emergency responders will need to evaluate and stabilize the injured players and then send them to Sturgis Hospital for treatment.

While the incident is not real, Hopkins says the response activities during the exercise will be practiced in a manner that is as realistic as possible. Due to liability issues, this event is not open to the public.

Hopkins says once the event has concluded a team of evaluators will meet with everyone involved to discuss both positives and negatives and assist all organizations to create ways to improve or enhance their performances in a real life event.
