Mass power outage simulation exercise "Dark Sky" to take place May 15-17

SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin National Guard is teaming up with police, fire, and emergency management groups to conduct a training exercise called "Dark Sky."

The exercise simulates a long-term, mass-power outage and tests the abilities of those agencies on the front lines responding to it. 

The Dark Sky exercise starts Tuesday, May 15 and runs through Thursday, May 17. Seven counties, including Milwaukee and Fond du Lac are participating which means some may see an increased presence of emergency responders and equipment.
