Avera Creighton Hospital (ACH) and Care Centre strive to be prepared for any disaster situation. The drill requires testing the plans set in place to efficiently work together with the rescue squad, fire department and law enforcement officials.
A community wide disaster drill will take place on September 27 late in the afternoon. ACH and Care Center would like to alert the public to not be alarmed if you see or hear emergency vehicles responding to this drill.
Avera Creighton Hospital in conjunction with LifeServe Blood Center will be conducting a blood drive on September 20 from 1:30-5:30pm.

A local Christian author will be doing a book presentation and signing at the Creighton Public Library on August 15.
Alisha Pellatz is the author of the Christian book "Disciples." She will be signing from 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Pellatz has always loved telling stories and being creative. In her junior year of high schools, she had to make the decision between art and writing. It was that that point, that she felt God calling her to write fiction books focused on the daily Christian walk with God. She sees daily life with God as exciting and hopes to portray that excitement to others. In her free times, Alisha enjoys drawing, spending time with family, playing with her dog, and taking walks which are her special moments with God.
It was an afternoon and evening of celebrating, remembering and fighting back at the Knox County Relay For Life in Creighton.
Look below at our photos of the incredible event.
Were you or someone you know at the Berry Pepper Parade? See if you can find them in our photo gallery. We have a mix of photos of the entries and of those watching as we walked the route.
Turtle races may be meant for youth, but there were plenty of parents cheering on their four-legged friends on Sunday afternoon in Creighton.
Some cheered, some tickled their turtles, others gave kisses. Mostly, it was an afternoon of smiles.
Those who scattered after the turtle races on Sunday afternoon in Bruce Park missed out on fun with the fire department. Children were given the opportunity to use a fire hose and push the ball in a fun competition.
The aroma of barbecue and smoke lingered through Bruce Park on Saturday afternoon as competitive cookers worked their magic in preparation for Ribfest during Creighton's Berry Pepper Days.
Check out some of the competitors and feel free to comment as to what ribs you thought were the best.
There were lots of smiles coming from the bouncy houses in Creighton - when the rain wasn't falling, that is.
