Medical agencies take part in statewide emergency drill
Lompoc Record

Not only did a shipment arrive later than expected at Lompoc Valley Medical Center, but once it did show up, hospital staff was caught off guard by the size of the vehicle that was used to transport the medications and was unable to quickly unload them.

Had there been an emergency, those issues could have led to serious consequences.

Thankfully for hospital staff, and the community at-large, Thursday’s situation was part of a drill that was intended to test those very scenarios.
