SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Emergency managers in one Georgia County are looking for about 200 volunteers to help make more realistic an evacuation drill in March.

The Chatham Emergency Management Agency will conduct a full-scale exercise March 26 at the Coastal Georgia Center and the Savannah Civic Center.

The Savannah Morning News reports the exercise will test the county's Evacuation Assembly Area plan. The plan is implemented when the public needs transportation assistance during a county evacuation order, as happened with Hurricanes Irma and Matthew. The last time the exercise was conducted was 2015.

Volunteers should expect the exercise to last from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

To participate, contact Taylor Sanchez with CEMA at 912-201-4500 or tsanchezchathamcounty.org.
