Local first responders are practicing their response to emergency situations to keep your family safe.

On Tuesday, Ohio County Sheriffs, Wheeling Police, along with other agencies worked through a fictional Winter Storm.

Ohio County EMA director Lou Vargo ran the drill as if it were a real disaster, prompting officers with situations like a six car pileup, a gas leak, roads closed, fires, and more.

They also practice coordinating with other departments in Hancock, Brooke, and Jefferson Counties, as well as Pittsburgh.
