Emergency responders from Westville and La Porte County and the Indiana State Police were at the Westville Correctional Facility for the prison's annual disaster drill this week. Public Information Officer for the center, John Schrader, says the drill featured a simulated explosion of one of the boilers in the powerhouse.  Schrader also says one of the main reasons for running these drills is to make sure responders know how to get in and out of the facility.
