In case of emergency...

On the morning of April 23, emergency vehicles descended onto the scene at the Port of Camas-Washougal offices. “Smoke” drifted from inside the building as firefighters rescued “victims” who were screaming for help inside.
It was all part of a scheduled emergency drill, but there were many times throughout the event that it felt very real.
"When it feels real like that, it can be stressful," said Port Communications Manager Jack Hardy. "It was real enough that I got a call from a radio station in Portland asking about what happened with the explosion."
