Calhoun's emergency services and responders participated in a mock disaster Saturday, a scenario involving a two vehicle, high-speed, head-on collision, with entrapment and multiple injuries to eight victims, including one deceased.

Complicating the mock disaster, part of the planned situation, was the spillage of 100 gallons of gasoline and medical helicopters unable to fly due to weather conditions.

Calhoun EMS, Minnie Hamilton Health System, Upper West Fork VFD, Arnoldsburg VFD and the Grantsville VFD responded, in addition to law enforcement and other responders.

The drill was held adjacent to Calhoun's 911 Center.

Calhoun OES/911 Director Kathy Wood said the responders worked hard during the exercise, doing their job well.
