Mock evacuation gives valuable experience

A fake sinkhole opened up at the Bledsoe County Nursing Home last Thursday, June 19, and Bledsoe County emergency responders immediately got to work for a mock training drill performed by the Bledsoe County Emergency Management Agency (EMA).

The call came in at 9:30 a.m. a sinkhole opened up in two rooms in Hall B of the Nursing Home. Crews immediately dispatched Bledsoe County Rescue Squad, Pikeville Volunteer Fire Department, emergency medical services, and EMA.
