Staff at Midway Fire Rescue spent part of this month training to deal with situations involving hazardous materials. The training scenario entailed crews responding to an unknown gas leak from a container truck, said Chief Doug Eggiman. Emergency responders had to dress out in level A suits, access and identify the gas, identify evacuation and treatment plans, and stop the leak.
“Honestly, this training is probably the best we have held at MFR in a long time with HazMat,” said Battalion Chief Brent McClellan. “It was very realistic and encompassed a huge amount of work and tools.”
