HAND COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT, the Sheriff’s Office, and numerous other first responders and “volunteers” participated in a full-scale disaster exercise September 26 at the courthouse, when shooters began firing at the judge and others in the courtroom. Emergency manager Nehemia Volquardsen said he felt the exercise, which lasted about three hours, was well conducted and taken seriously by participants, which included 18 volunteers, three “shooters” and 24 responders. A full account will be in next week’s paper.
