Ocean City Prepares For Disaster

Posted: Updated:

Salisbury, Md.- Early Tuesday morning, Ocean City officials conducted training on what to do should a disaster hit the beach town.  Government officials of the city gathered at Wor Wic Community college today, which is their relocation site.

They took a tour of the school, learning the operational space, asked questions of Wor-Wic staff, and tested communication.

Fortunately -- a catastrophe has yet to displace government official.  However, they say that preparation is key.

Emergency services director, Joseph Theobald, says, "there's an expectation that government will continue running no matter what...plans are only as good as when you test an exercise so we take it very seriously in ocean city  and that's why we're here today."

Wor-Wic Community College staff and Ocean City officials say, they are prepared to handle relocation for over a 30 day period.
