St. John Disaster Drill

November 18, 2010

Three rail cars carrying anhydrous ammonia – on the tracks south of the City of St. John – have derailed.  That was the scenario for the disaster table-top exercise this evening. 

Kansas Emergency Management representatives facilitated the exercise that walked the participants through a major hazardous material disaster.   The purpose of the exercise was to fine tune emergency response knowledge and to identify needs.
