Those involved in the disaster drill will include the Pike County sheriff’s office, emergency services, local and state Emergency Management Agency members, Mid Georgia Ambulance and regional hospitals. ’We’ve had great cooperation between all local first responders, law enforcement and regional hospitals. We want to go through this mock drill to make sure our response is coordinated and refined so in the unlikely event we do have a disaster on campus, the response is effective,’ Dr. Duncan said.
