Two local leaders recognized by the state
PRINCETON – Two local emergency preparedness leaders have received state recognition for their roles in the Bureau Putnam County Emergency Preparedness Community Partners (BPEPCP) coalition.
BPEPCP co-chairs Deb Wood and Lisa Clinton were honored at the Integrated Public Health and Medical Preparedness Summit for coordinating the year’s most creative emergency preparedness exercise in the state.
The mock disaster drill took place in May 2012 and involved numerous countywide resources, agencies and emergency responders. Two simulated flooding disaster evacuations took place at the same time on opposite sides of the county – one at Walnut Manor and the other in the village of DePue. The drill tested the abilities of Bureau and Putnam counties’ resources as a plan to deal with two disasters at the same time was developed and acted out.
