Imagine a tornado bearing down on your town. Would you know how to react? That was the scenario in Casselton where the city held a tornado training drill.

About half a dozen agencies took part to strategize a response to a direct tornado hit. Some people played the part of storm victims giving paramedics a chance to brush up on first aid skills.

Red Cross volunteers did a walk thru of the school to talk about what it would take to turn it into a shelter.

Kevin Mayer - Casselton Public Works: “Gives us an idea of how we function and in the case of an actual disaster we have that working knowledge with each other of how everybody's going to do.”

This is National Severe Storm Preparedness week.
