Regular training helps agencies from the Mo. National Guard to local responders keep current with necessary emergency and disaster logistics, communications and cooperation. More than 4,600 citizens, soldiers and airmen participated in the 5-day Vigilant Guard exercise, which concluded Wednesday.
The exercise was designed to test the ability to respond to a major earthquake along the New Madrid Seismic Zone in southeast Missouri.
