When disaster strikes
MARK — Police and rescue personnel throughout the surrounding area converged on Mennie Machine Co. in Mark on Sunday after Carl Spackler, a crazed gunman, shot and killed one person and held several others hostage for three hours.
Thankfully, it was actually only a drill.
The training exercise was conducted by the Putnam County Emergency Management Agency (PCEMA) with the Illinois Emergency Management Association and included representatives from law enforcement agencies from Bureau, Henry, Lee and Whiteside counties, as well as local emergency services and the Illinois Valley Special Response Team (SRT). Emergency drills are required for certification by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Homeland Security.
