CLANTON, Ala. (AP) - Alabama emergency officials this week will
conduct a statewide test of hurricane communications equipment.
Communications coordinator Chuck Murph will lead the week-long
exercise from a site in Baldwin County.
The training includes a scenario centering around a hurricane
striking Alabama's coast and disabling most commercial and public
safety communication infrastructure.
Hurricane season begins June 1, and officials say this exercise
will test protocols and procedures for effectively transmitting information from county to county and from the coast to the Claton-based State Emergency Operations
