Croton-on-Hudson holds emergency drill for village staff
Croton-on-Hudson held a drill today meant to ensure that the village government will keep operating in case of an emergency.
As part of the drill, the municipal building of Croton-on-Hudson was evacuated after a simulated fire.
The employees of all the departments that make up the municipal government of the village have made a temporary home at the Harmon Firehouse, where they continued their day-to-day work.
"There is an opportunity for us to get all the departments involved and see if they can provide services to the Village of Croton, even though they're not working out of their normal offices," says Emergency Director Richard Nagle.
Deputy Chief Donald Keinz, of the White Plains Fire Department, was on hand to critique the performance of Croton-on-Hudson officials during the drill.
"It's a no-fault learning environment, and in going around the room I'm stressing that fact that today there aren't any mistakes made, only lessons learned, Keinz says.
