With the terror of the Boston Marathon fresh in mind, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will be the site of a large-scale emergency preparedness drill on May 13. The drill, sponsored by the Northeast Pennsylvania Regional Counter Terrorism Task Force, will center on an emergency incident at the amusement park in South Whitehall Township, replicating "a hazardous condition with multiple casualties during the peak of the park's summer season," according to a township news release. "When an emergency occurs you always revert to the manner in which you have been trained, and during an emergency it's too late to exchange business cards," task force manager Robert G. Werts said.
The township said the event will be as realistic as possible, with 300 to 400 first responders and volunteers carrying out crime scene investigations and medical treatment of victims.
