SOLON– Imagine a large tornado had passed north of Solon.
That’s what a statewide emergency response team was doing.
Members of the Iowa Task Force-1 Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team spent a good part of two days in late June at the Lakeview OHV (Off Highway Vehicle) Park, formerly known as 600 acres, simulating their reaction to widespread tornado activity.
Headed by director Dan Dall of rural Solon, the team is trained to perform a variety of search and rescue operations in the aftermath of natural or manmade disasters.
