Beckley prepares for severe weather event


The city of Beckley is making sure they are ready for the next big weather event to hit.

Tuesday afternoon emergency services personnel talked with their counterparts from across the country through a program with FEMA and the Emergency Management Institute called a Virtual Tabletop Exercise.

During the event all groups were able to interact with each other to determine if they had the necessary resources for a severe weather event.  If not, what they need to do to get what they need.

With winter just around the corner, the mock scenario weather event for the training was a severe snowstorm.

Forty people attended the training.
