Earthquake Drill Tests First Responders Across Illinois, Seven Other States


measure readiness in the likely event of a major earthquake in one of the state’s main seismic zones. 

 

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency says there is a very good chance of a major earthquake in the future along the New Madrid fault or in the Wabash Valley.  A big quake could cause extensive damage and strain the response capability of first responders. 

 

Teams are working out of the state’s emergency response center in Springfield this week, simulating the actions they would need to take if a real earthquake hit.  The multi-state drill runs through Friday.
