About two dozen emergency response agencies from across North Carolina are practicing how to rescue people trapped in vehicles, buildings and trees as part of hurricane preparedness training.
The training begins today in Greenville and ends Friday and
involves urban, swift water and helo-aquatic rescue teams. On
Thursday, the teams will "rescue" flood survivors from a former
mobile home park that was flooded during Hurricane Floyd and is now
owned by the city of Greenville.
The N.C. Division of Emergency Management and the city of
Greenville are sponsoring the training.
