GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - If you were planning to head to the Mesa County Central Services building on Thursday, November 9, watch out - because the building will be opening a little later than usual.
The Central Services building will open their doors at 8:30 in the morning on Thursday, instead of their normal time, which is 7:30 A.M. The delayed start gives the staff an hour for a surprise drill, where they will be forced to respond to an emergency.
Those with Central Services said because they get so many people in the building every day, that they feel a responsibility to keep both their employees and customers safe in any situation. "We're not letting anybody know exactly what kind of drill it's going to be. So at 7:30 in the morning, everybody's supposed to report to their normal working environment, something's going to happen, and we're going to need to respond," said Sheila Reiner, the Mesa County Clerk and Recorder.
The reason they chose a delayed start was to try and impact their customers as little as possible, as opposed to having a drill during normal business hours.
