LANESBOROUGH -- Emergency response organizations will participate in an emergency operations community drill on Sunday at the Berkshire Mall.
The emergency drill will simulate a mass casualty incident in the community in which numerous agencies would respond. The drill will include Berkshire Medical Center; the Lanesborough Police and Fire departments; Lanesborough, County and Action ambulance services; and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.
The drill is designed to test the response of local emergency operations organizations in the event of a real incident. Area residents may notice increased activity around the Berkshire Mall and at Berkshire Medical Center, and radio chatter during the drill.
The drill will not have any impact on response to an actual emergency, should one occur, and will not interfere with the Berkshire Mall's businesses or operation.
