Liberty County officials conduct emergency drill


Liberty County carried out a large-scale emergency drill Saturday morning that involved numerous local emergency response agencies.

Liberty Regional EMS, Liberty County EMA, Eastern District Fire Department and the Liberty County Sheriff's Department were all apart of the organized drill that put the agencies to test in a realistic disaster situation.

The drill involved an 18-wheeler containing life-threatening chemicals submerged in a 10 acre pond.

First responders were to provide immediate care for those along the pond's banks suffering from any effects of the spill.
