It may have looked like disaster struck Athens County in a big way last Wednesday, but it was all in the name of practicing for the real thing.  Athens County EMA personnel and the Ohio National Guard’s 52nd Civil Support Team for Weapons of Mass Destruction held a day-long drill at the Athens County Fairgrounds. Agencies from around the county, including many units of first responders participated in the exercise.  Red Cross volunteers served coffee and donuts to the exercise participants …out of an ERV parked closer than it likely would be in the real thing!
