Fort Stewart holds hurricane training

Posted: Updated:
FORT STEWART (WTOC) -

Stewart Guardian 2014 is underway, and the disaster simulation exercise brings local, state and federal agencies together for some realistic training, including responding to fictional storm Hurrican Brutus.

First responders had to tackle post storm challenges like fires.

"We want to bring in all agencies that are affected when Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield are affected by an incident, and make sure we know how to communicate with them, contact them, and make sure we are all on the same sheet of music," said emergency and Contingency Planning Officer Tony Fleeger.

Hurricane Season officially starts June 1.
