Ross County public safety agencies and the Ohio National Guard are preparing for a building to collapse today.

It's not a real building, it's a structural collapse simulator.

The three-day training exercise at Camp Sherman near Chillicothe will prepare them for the real thing.

The exercise will simulate an explosion and partial structure collapse at the local Glatfelter facility.

About 100 local and state first responders will take part, along with personnel from the Ohio National Guard.
