Emergency drills across the state this week

Posted: Updated:
VERMONT -

Don't be alarmed if you see a sudden surge in emergency responders this week.

Starting Monday, federal, state, and local agencies are going to be conducting exercises to test their procedures in the event of a disaster.

The state's Emergency Operations Center will be open for several days, ending with a 36-hour operation Friday to test the capability of the state responders.

Officials say they'll be simulating multiple disasters in all corners of the state.

Nearly 1,600 people will be tested during this time. The planning for this has been in the works for two years.
