Dyess Air Force Base and Hendrick Medical Center prepared for the worst as the hospital hosted their first tornado drill.
A tornado can strike in a moment's notice. Drills like these are necessary, according to organizers.
Taylor said, "It's one of those things that if you do not prepare for a tornado disaster, you never know when it's going to happen."
Preparing for a tornado involves more than one agency.
"In a major casualty the staff or the (emergency room) cannot absorb all the extra casualties," Clinton Taylor said. "So, you're going to need additional support from other locations throughout the hospital."
