Montana DES is proud to be a part of the Operation Forging Steel and Operation Melting Iron exercises taking place April 19-23, 2017. The Town of Plentywood and Sheridan County have teamed up with the State of Montana and the Montana National Guard to conduct a robust exercise in their community!
When requested Montana Disaster and Emergency Services coordinates with local jurisdictions as they manage disasters and emergencies.
Why are exercises like these important?
Exercises are an excellent way to validate response plans and ultimately ensure we are better prepared to support counties and tribal nations during disasters.
