BRANT COUNTY - Brant officials practiced the emergency actions and responses for a major winter storm last Thursday.

Mayor David Bailey says he believed that this drill was a complete success.

"This scenario was complex and included road closures, buildings with roofs that collapsed, a gas leak, personnel injuries, and downed cell towers. Overall, the collaboration and response was very well done.”

This practice scenario included OPP, Energy Plus, Union Gas and Brant County Health Unit’s Medical Officer. 

The drill included downed cell towers, injured Law enforcers, and other incidents possible in a Major Snow Storm.

Bailey says they want residents to do their part in the case of an emergency as well. 

“As much as we prepare at the County, we also need residents to prepare. Have a well-stocked emergency kit with enough water, food, medication and pet food to last at least 72 hours.”

It has been said that the scenario went very well and was quite a complex task.
