Hazardous-material drill scheduled in East Toledo

Passers-by and neighbors ought not be alarmed: A full-scale hazardous materials exercise will take place between 7:30 a.m. and noon tomorrow in the area of Front Street and I-280.

Federal, state, and local emergency response agencies will participate.

During the exercise, firefighting and emergency response equipment will be used and hospital staff members and community volunteers will simulate an evacuation and the treatment of victims.

The exercise will be coordinated by the Lucas County Local Emergency Planning Committee, which is required by state law to conduct an annual hazardous materials drill.
