Rockford Memorial Hospital hopes Thursday's disaster drill answers that question.

All three Rockford hospitals and area health departments participated in the disaster scenario that was played out in real time. The exercises use interactive technology that tests plans and procedures.

This is the first national bioterrorist drill to use this platform. Rockford Memorial's disaster coordinator says even Rockford should be on alert for bio-terrorism.

Bellone says the drill is a great way for area hospitals to collaborate and determine the best emergency plan.
