Those who have subscribed to the EAC Omnilert system will be notified that a drill is in process. “It is critically important for local agencies to work and train together in preparation for complex situations,” said Lance Lines, EAC police officer. “We are grateful that area agencies are coming together to help keep our communities safe.” Participating agencies include: AirEvac, Eastern Arizona College EMS, Eastern Arizona College Police Department, Fort Thomas Fire Department, Graham County Sheriff’s Office, Lifeline, LifeNet, Mt.
