CCSO sets up Nov. 7 training day for handling emergencies, disasters

On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office will host a dynamic day of community partnership training at its Emergency Operations Center (EOC), 3549 Saunders Way, in Lecanto.

From 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., residents will have a unique opportunity to learn more about how to best prepare and respond to an act of terrorism, a natural disaster or a man-made emergency.

When first responders are overwhelmed by massive disasters, such as 9/11 or Hurricane Katrina, citizens may be left to cope on their own for the first few hours or perhaps even longer.
