Several agencies participate in mass casualty response exercise

Several people met in Louisa on Monday to practice response to mass casualty events.

Public and mental health officials, law enforcement, county officials, as well as folks from the state medical examiner's officer participated in the exercise at the Lawrence County Health Department.

Organizers say no matter the size of their community, disasters can happen and they need to be prepared.

Representatives from 18 different agencies participated in the exercise.
