Albany -- If there were a terroristic attack in South Georgia, would we be ready? Emergency workers in Albany want to make sure of it.

Fire, Police, and Emergency Medical workers attended a conference at Albany State on preparing and responding to terrorism. Congressman Sanford Bishop said " All of them be prepared, so they can communicate with one another, so that they have the training and the equipment to respond quickly and efficiently."

Albany Fire Chief and E.M.A. Director Jimmy Arrowood said "It's a constant learning curve, everything changes on a regular basis, and you have to retool and add to your preparedness."

The first responders were reminded that in today's world, they must keep a sharp eye on the community.
