An exercise in Wisner next month will test the Northeast Nebraska Regional Agricultural emergency plan.
The tabletop exercise will be held Wednesday, Dec. 4, at the Wisner VFW. It is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and run until about 3 p.m.
To be tested in the exercise are:
• Food and agriculture safety and defense
• Animal disease emergency support
• Emergency public information and warning
• On-scene incident management planning
A number of techniques will be used to critically evaluate response and improve both the plan and future agriculture emergency responses.
