FREEPORT � Highland Community College and FHN will partner with emergency responders from Stephenson County and the City of Freeport to conduct a combined crisis response training exercise on Saturday, August 6 2011, beginning at 8:00 a.m. in the Natural Science and Health Center on the HCC campus. The exercise will be completed by noon. The purpose of this live drill is to afford first responders the opportunity to engage in realistic training to ensure the safety of area residents and the HCC community in the event of an actual emergency. funny dog pictures

"The exercise is being designed to provide a valuable learning experience for everyone participating," said Jill Janssen, HCC Vice President of Administrative Services, who oversees Highland�s emergency response plan. "This will be vital exercise for the college to participate in to help ensure that our lead staff and local emergency responders are familiar with policies put in place to help protect our students and campus community." funny pictures

�FHN plays a pivotal role in community preparedness. Working with our community partners in the EMS, Fire, and Law Enforcement fields is an ongoing process in preparing everyone to respond in a crisis situation,� said Doug Toepfer, FHN Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. �The opportunity to work with HCC and bring them into our preparedness training is very exciting. This exercise is just one of many that FHN conducts or participates in every year. Preparing for the �what ifs� is what Emergency Preparedness is all about.� funny images

The HCC campus community and general public should be aware that the exercise is taking place and that multiple emergency responders, public safety vehicles, mock perpetrators and victims will be engaged in the exercise on August 6.
