City employees practice emergency situation

Posted: Thursday, October 13, 2011 12:00 am

About 60 city of Lodi employees discussed what to do if there was a medium or major flood in Lodi, as part of an emergency operation center exercise on Wednesday morning at the Lodi Fire Station on Elm Avenue. From right: Battalion Chief Ron Penix, Parks Superintendent Steve Dutra, Lodi Electric Utility Director Liz Kirkley and Human Resources Manager Dean Gualco took notes during the training exercise organized by Police Chief Mark Helms and interim Fire Chief Dan Haverty. City staff looked at what would happen if there was minor street flooding or if the Mokelumne River put the northern part of the city under water. "It's the most likely scenario of a large-scale emergency we would have based on history," city spokesman Jeff Hood said. (Courtesy Photograph)
