GILLMAN - Gillman residents are being advised of an emergency exercise that will take place at Incobrasa Industries, Inc. on August 2.
Organizations and emergency services from around the area will participate in the exercise, which is being conducted to test and improve the community's overall preparedness for an emergency event. A chemical spill will be simulated at the facility, and participants will simulate an emergency scene, which includes redirecting traffic, the mass transit of volunteer "victims," and fire department response.
The incident will not be real, but the response activities during the exercise will be practiced as realistically as possible. The areas where the exercise will take place will be clearly marked, and not open to the public.
