Evacuation Training Exercise to Prepare for Hurricane Situation

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - We are in the midst of hurricane season, and should the worst hit our area, local agencies want to make sure they are ready. On Friday, they held an evacuation training exercise.

The exercise was held at the Corpus Christi Gym near Cabaniss Parkway. Volunteers were acting as evacuees, pretending to be sent to safe locations throughout the state during an emergency situation.

Among the groups taking part in the drill were folks with the City of Corpus Christi, the Regional Transportation Authority, the Corpus Christi Independent School District and representatives with the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November.
