Seniors get exercise

Saratoga Care Center to hold emergency drill


A security exercise has been scheduled to take place at the Saratoga Care Center this week, according to Carbon County Emergency Management Coordinator John Zeiger.

The exercise is scheduled to take place sometime between Sept. 25-30 at the nursing home facility, Zeiger said.

The purpose of the exercise is to assess the ability of local law enforcement agencies, other first responders and nursing home staff to coordinate with one another during an emergency situation.

The Saratoga Police Department, Saratoga Volunteer Fire Department, Encampment Volunteer Fire Department, Ryan Park Volunteer Fire Department and the South Central Wyoming Emergency Medical Services have all been made aware of the exercise and have been invited to participate in the drill, Zieger said.

The exact time and date of the exercise—as well as the nature of the simulation—are being withheld to preserve the element of surprise for first responders who participate.
