Just over $12,000 will be used to pay for a specialist to design the two exercise scenarios and prepare the required follow-up reports to the Department of Homeland Security, Schmid said. One exercise would be an in-house management response, he said, the other would be an outdoor emergency response training session.
The county should hear if it will get the grant this spring, Schmid said, and would have 18 months to conduct the two exercises.
The County Board vote was 27-3. Supervisors Ralph Hensel and Michael Bassill of West Bend and John Bulawa of Hartford voted against it.
