Vigilant Guard Exercise
Georgetown County will be the site of a major multi-state, multi-agency disaster preparedness exercise March 3 -12. During this time, the public should expect to see unusual activity, including military aircraft flying overhead, as well as a large military presence on land and water throughout the county.
The bulk of the activity for the exercise will take place March 6-9. Public viewing areas will be set up to allow area residents to observe some of the exercise activities during this period. Additionally, the county will need to temporarily close some of its parks and recreational facilities during this time to accommodate exercise activities. For a full list of observation opportunities and closings, and for more information on the exercise, visit www.gtcounty.org.
