Marathon County is already planning its next large-scale disaster exercise, less than a month after a mock bomb explosion at NorthCentral Technical College.
According to the county administrator, emergency responders improved greatly from past mock disasters, but still have much to learn.
An outside consulting firm recommends the county work on communication and technology.
"We got the job done out on the field in terms of the exercise, and we learned a lot of lessons, but to be honest I think there were a lot of participants who left and were a little disappointed in how they did," said Brad Karger.
On the other hand, Karger applauds all who participated on the many things they did well.
Among them, great teamwork and coordination.
If the county is awarded another grant to cover the costs, they will go ahead with their next mock disaster...simulating the Rib Mountain tornado of 1977.
