SOSO, MS (WDAM) - Jones County emergency responders and Nationa lGuardsmen spent most of Thursday participating in a series of disaster drills to test their readiness for an actual emergency. 

The drills included a simulated chemical spill at West Jones High School, and it was one of three simultaneous emergency scenarios staged at 6 p.m. 

Jones County authorities are training with the Mississippi National Guard's 47th Civil Support Team.

Another mass casualty scenario was staged Thursday near Laurel. 

The 12-hour exercise was scheduled to end at 11 p.m. Thursday.
