From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Dubois County’s Local Emergency Planning Committee will hold a full-scale training exercise next month.
The exercise slated for 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 6, will simulate an anhydrous ammonia leak at Farbest Foods, 4689 S. 400W, Huntingburg.
Numerous emergency response agencies will participate, including law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical services, hospital personnel, industry representatives, safety and environmental managers and members of the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency’s staff, according to EMA Director Tammy Humbert.
County Road 400W will have numerous emergency responders and emergency vehicles between county roads 450S and 500W during the exercise, so the public is asked to avoid the area that Saturday morning.
The purpose of the training is to increase the responders’ ability to manage a hazardous materials incident, according to Humbert.
Anyone with questions can call Humbert at 812-482-2202 or exercise chairman Pat Todd at 812-996-5241.
