Stephanie Murphree was in studio to invite volunteers from the community come out and help with the drill which will take place on the grounds of Midland College beginning Friday at noon. Though we don't face very many natural disasters here in West Texas, we do have to potential for severe weather, industrial accidents or even wildfires, that could leave many homeless. The Red Cross will also offer a seminar on how to prepare a 'Bug-Out-Bag' - provisions for 72 hours incase of a disaster.
