The Marion County Emergency Response Association held their quarterly meeting Tuesday evening and members received training from the emergency communication trailer based out of Appanoose County and the Mercy Air Ambulance. Communications Director Martha Dykstra tells KNIA/KRLS news the purpose of the additional training was to get information out to everyone involved with emergency services and inform them of the resources that are available to the county. Dykstra says the department seldom sees such equipment until it is needed in an emergency situation.
