The Northeast Regional Incident Management Team is meeting for training in Topeka Tuesday and Wednesday.

They're going over procedures for deploying to a disaster like a tornado or an attack, and how to make sure everyone is working together.

They also unveiled new equipment from Homeland Security, including a mobile command trailer to be housed in Lyon County.

The regional team is made up of law enforcement, fire, emergency management, hospital and other personnel from 23 counties.
