For your awareness, the Southern Utah Corp of the Utah National Guard will be doing a disaster support exercise on Saturday, January 20, 2018. They will be using several venues across Washington County to simulate drinking water distribution, sandbagging operations and radio communications. They are planning to do a large-area search drill in the Hildale – Colorado City area as a repeat of the flood search in the Short Creek wash.
There will be up to 40 guardsmen with command and transport vehicles searching the creek-bed for most of the day. They will be providing their own meals and water as part of their deployment drill.
