East Branch Lake hosted a First Responder and Safety Tabletop Exercise at the East Branch Resident Office, May 6.
Led by Pittsburgh District’s Jim Christ, emergency planner, and Kim Warner, East Branch resident engineer, the group discussed possible incident scenarios on the construction site and any other issues which could arise. The discussions will assist in refining the notification processes and improving preparedness in case of an on-site accident or injury.
Nearly 20 personnel participated in the event including representatives from the Elk County Office of Emergency Services, Wilcox Volunteer Fire Department, Ridgway Ambulance Service and Layne Construction Company. District representatives included personnel from the district’s Readiness, Construction and Operations offices.
