Participants Richard Cooper, Donnie Wheeler, Tim Brown, Brad Crick, Ethan Barton, Shown Auxier, Matthew Gullett and Michael Payton took two runs through the pit trying for a time that would take them to the top of the leader's board. In the end, Donnie Wheeler took the win with a time of 6.14 seconds through the pit, and Gullett placed second with a time of 6.61 seconds.
    In the second division of the evening, two wheel drive quad drivers took their chances in the muck.

Local responders attend Homeland Security training PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 30 July 2009 00:00


    Emergency Responders Todd Webb and Doug Bentfield from the Clark County Health Department, recently completed Homeland Security training at the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP), located in Anniston, Alabama. The CDP is operated by the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and is the only federally-charted Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) training facility in the nation.
    “Clark County is fortunate to have individuals to further their education and help make Clark County a safer place in the event of an emergency. The Clark County Health Department has someone on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. We are dispatched through central alarm,” Webb explained.
    The CDP provides federally-funded, interdisciplinary training for emergency responders from across the United States and U.S. Territories, for 10 responder disciplines: Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Service, Fire Service, Governmental Administrative, Hazardous Materials, Healthcare, Law Enforcement, Public Health, Public Safety Communications and Public Works.
    Healthcare and Public Health training is conducted at the CDP’s Noble Training Facility, the nation’s only hospital facility dedicated to training hospital and healthcare professionals in disaster preparedness and response.
    Many training courses culminate at the CDP’s Chemical, Ordnance, Biological and Radiological Training Facility, the nation’s only facility featuring civilian training exercises in a true toxic environment, using chemical agents. The advanced hands-on training enables responders to effectively prevent, respond to and recover from real-world incidents involving acts of terrorism and other hazardous materials.
    Responders attending CDP training are selected from the nation’s 11 million emergency responders. Training at the CDP ensures that responders gain critical skills and confidence to be better prepared to effectively respond to local incidents or potential WMD incidents.
    Additional information about CDP training programs can be found at http://cdp.dhs.gov.
    FEMA coordinates the federal government’s role in preparing for, preventing, mitigating the effects of, responding to and recovering from all domestic disasters, whether natural or man-made, including acts of terror.
