ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   Albany Marine Base emergency personnel trained with city and county leaders to be ready in case of disaster. 

Fifteen members of the Marine Base's Police, Fire, and Emergency Operations departments joined with leaders from Albany, Dougherty and Lee County for National Incident Management Systems training.

Homeland Security Instructors are coordinating the training. Marine Base officials say they want to be ready to not only protect their base, but to work with the community in case of emergency or disaster.

"This is an excellent opportunity for us to get together and work with the local community to between understand our capabilities and limitations to support one another in case something did happen," said Bob James, M.C.L.B. Operations & Training Deputy Dir.

The emergency preparedness training will continue through Thursday.
