Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - While many people are ready for Spring - those in the Valley always have the threat of flooding.

To prepare, the North Dakota National Guard conducted its annual flood response exercise today.

Multiple agencies teamed up - including the Department of Emergency Services.

Bob Fode/Director of Joint Staff, ND National Guard: "We try to use those things we have learned in past events to make this even more realistic than just doing an exercise. So yes, it prepares us very well on relationships and what our processes will be in case of some event in the future"

Last spring soldiers and airmen worked around the clock for nearly two weeks - providing flood response in Cass County.
