The Illinois National Guard and local police, fire and transit departments are organizing a five-day series of drills set to test the Chicago area's emergency procedures in response to numerous simultaneous disasters, officials said in a statement today.
The drills started today and are to last until Thursday.
"It is a full-scale exercise, so residents can expect to see emergency responders looking and acting as if this was a real homeland security/domestic response mission," the National Guard said in a statement.
