  • Helman Elementary School teachers teamed up with Ashland's Community Emergency Response Team volunteers to better prepare for natural disasters.
    In emergency drills this month, teachers trained in two-way radio communication, learned disaster first aid techniques and stuffed emergency backpacks with necessary disaster survival supplies.
    Though the drills focused heavily on disasters like fires, floods and major power outages, they were inspired by the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, organizers said.
