News Briefs

Do you ever wonder if the Toledo area is ready to handle a natural disaster? Well, the Ohio National Guard is going to put itself and local first responders to the test.  The Guard’s Joint Task Force will conduct a Fully Operational Capability exercise at Owens Community College’s Center for Emergency Preparedness in Perrysburg Township Aug 11-15.

The exercise will involve more than 300 Ohio National Guard personnel and many local first responders and role players. Units participating are based in Columbus, Kettering, Middletown, Chillicothe and Toledo. These men and women will be put in an exercise which is based on a scenario of a natural disaster striking the Toledo area.

Benefit planned

Honor Flight of Northwest Ohio is planning a live gala auction to raise funds so that more World War II veterans will have an opportunity to see their memorial in the nation’s capital. The local chapter has already completed two successful missions.

The gala auction will be held Aug. 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Cousino’s Navy Bistro at The Docks. The evening will feature entertainment, food and spirits, along.
