Disaster drill

About 50 people participated in a disaster drill organized by Columbia’s Office of Volunteer Services on Thursday, June 26, 2008. The purpose of the drill was to practice and test the community’s management of volunteers in the event of a disaster. Volunteers registered, were interviewed and placed, and then received identification and training for a position in response to a hypothetical major power outage.
