ROCKFORD - Local first responders prepare for the worst.

The Winnebago County Citizen Corp Council held a training session to increase disaster preparedness in case of a tornado or other natural disaster.

The corp is made up of first responders and government health and social service organizations.

"This community is a community with heart. A very large heart," said Paul Logli, President and CEO of the Rock River Valley United Way. "We know after a disaster that we will have volunteers showing up. Our challenge is to make sure the volunteers showing up are organized - working with these partners - and ready to help and not obstruct."

The training involves a partnership between the United Way and Winnebago County.
