TOUGH HAUL–Michael Schultz of Watton is prepared for transport to Baraga County Memorial Hospital by EMT’s Steve Irwin, left, and Carol Holma during a county-wide disaster drill last Tuesday. A tornado at the multi-purpose building wreaked pretend havoc in Covington.

A tornado in Covington and high winds in Baraga set the stage for a county-wide disaster drill last Tuesday, June 23, 2015. Baraga County Emergency Preparedness Director Daune Smith put the
drill in motion by dialing 911 from the Covington Multi-Purpose Building at 5:30 p.m. By 8 p.m. the scenes were a wrap with a whole lot of action–and learning–in between. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
