Three Star prepares for a disaster

Three Star Fire Department conducted a mass casualty training preparedness drill on Saturday afternoon at Austin Peay Elementary School. "The training is to help better prepare  our department with working with incidents involving multiple injuries and casualties," Jon Pierey, Three Star's chief, said. "There is a huge need for all agencies to be able to operate together on such an incident and by practicing, we will only become more prepared. The incidents could range from bus accidents to a plane crash. This preparedness will not only benefit the patients, but the responders with needed skills."
