Disaster 101: Area emergency responders take part in mock disaster drill



Karen Adams, spokesperson for East Texas Medical Center in Jacksonville, observed the drill. She said apart from a few communication glitches, she thought the drill went well and personnel acted appropriately.

Vintilla called the experience a “learning curve” and said it's all about getting better.

“The better that we can respond, the more lives we'll save,” he said. “That's what this is for, and I think today was very successful in achieving that goal in trying to improve.”
