(TCRHCC) will conduct a voluntary internal disaster drill on Thursday, Aug. 25 at 4 p.m. Examples of an internal disaster drill include fire, a bomb threat or explosion or another type of critical incident.

"The upcoming internal disaster drill demonstrates our commitment to the people in this community. We want to assure our community that the hospital is dedicated to remaining at the forefront of safety and excellence in medical care."
