FARMINGTON — First responders participated in the annual emergency disaster simulation today at the San Juan County Adult Detention Center.

The simulation was designed to train police and fire officials, and other first responders how to respond during disaster scenarios.

Today's scenario focused on responding to a riot at the detention center.

Planning for the simulation began with a Homeland Security orientation seminar in January.

The event was sponsored by the New Mexico Gas Company.
