Emergency management plan put to the test


Lake Oswego officials gather in the main fire station, designated as the city's local incident command center, Wednesday morning for a countywide emergency drill. The exercise ran emergency management teams through a flood scenario. Assistant Fire Chief Larry Goff said the drill helped bring together Lake Oswego employees with those in neighboring cities and Clackamas County to test their emergency response plans in case of winter flooding or similar hazards. 'There are a lot of new city staff members, and we want to familiarize them with our winter emergency procedures and help them get more comfortable in their jobs,' Goff said.
