Exercise tests hurricane preparedness in Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – With the Atlantic hurricane season underway, officials at Sentara want to make sure they’re ready in case a storm hits this area.

Sentara Hospitals provided video of their Hurricane Preparedness Exercise at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

It simulated a mandatory evacuation. Hospital crews used med sleds and stair chairs, which is how they would move patients if the power was out and elevators were not working.
