Northern Exposure Exercise | 6/24/2015

Did you see those four Blackhawk helicopters in the air today?  A simulated "nuclear explosion" took place in downtown GR and  Crestwood Elementary on 44th Street was the "safe place evacuation center".  There are over 1000 National Guard, police, fire and  military personnel from around the State at Crestwood today.  There are actors playing the roles as victims and it is quite a production!
