WINTERSBURG, Ariz. (AP) - Emergency responders are holding a preparedness exercise for an evacuation from the vicinity of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station west of Phoenix.

The state Division of Emergency Management says the exercise being staged Wednesday involves responders from state, local and volunteer agencies.

They’ll be using Youngker High School in Buckeye to practice setting up evacuee reception center operations.

The division says this gives participating agencies a chance to refine their procedures and train new employees and volunteers.
