'Bus crash' planned near SHS


The Carbon County Office of Emergency Management will coordinate an exercise in Saratoga at 9 a.m., May 17 near Saratoga High School, according to Carbon County Emergency Manager John Zeiger.

The exercise is intended to give first responders a realistic situation to manage, he said.

Zeiger said the exercise will simulate a crash between a private vehicle and a school bus. In the scenario, the accident is caused by someone in the private vehicle texting while driving.

The road will be closed off near the simulated accident scene as agencies respond to the “accident” Zeiger said. The agency wants nearby residents to be aware of the time, date and location of the exercise so they do not believe it is a real accident and call the authorities, he said.

The exercise is one of four emergency trainings that are held every year, Zeiger said.
