A mock exercise is planned for eastern Kentucky today
A mock exercise is scheduled for this morning at 9 a.m. at the Combs Airport near the Floyd and Johnson County line.
Johnson County Emergency Management officials plan to conduct the training exercise in conjunction with the United States Prison Big Sandy. The exercise will demonstrate the capabilities of prison staff, as well as local agencies, in an incident involving transportation.
Residents are urged to not be alarmed during the mock exercise, as the incident is only for training purposes and not a real emergency. Anyone traveling in the area this morning is urged to use caution.
