Callaway County residents receiving a phone call this week asking them how long it would take to evacuate their home should not panic.
Most likely, that call will be part of an all-hazards evacuation planning survey conducted on behalf of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to assist area officials in developing emergency plans.
“When we’re doing planning, it gives us a time to figure out how long it would take to evacuate x-number of people based on road conditions and weather,” said Callaway County Emergency Planning Director Michelle Kidwell.
