On Thursday, October 21, the Madison County, Alabama Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) will conduct a training exercise in response to a simulated major earthquake associated with the East Appalachian Seismic Zone. The exercise will occur at 10:00 AM on Thursday October 21, at the Public Service Building at 320 Fountain Circle in Huntsville.
The Huntsville-Madison County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is responsible for supporting the Madison County VOAD. This important exercise will allow the non-profit and faith-based disaster response community to practice strategies for collaboration before a real disaster occurs. EMA staff is involved in promoting, facilitating and evaluating the exercise.
