ANCHORAGE - The military is getting ready to simulate how it would respond to a big earthquake in Alaska.

Lt. Gen. Dana Atkins, commander of Alaska's forces, says it will be the first time the Arctic Edge training exercise will bring together federal, state and local agencies to simulate a catastrophic earthquake.

The Arctic Edge exercise starts at the end of April and runs through the first week of May.
