Mock Drill to be held for emergency workers

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - On Thursday, a mock drill will make one Birmingham community look like a disaster has taken place.

Emergency Management workers will hold the mock drill beginning at 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. It will be held at the facilities of Industrial Chemicals, located in the Roberts Industrial Park in Ensley.
The scenario is that emergency workers will react to an accidental chemical spill which is compounded when a disgruntled employee takes advantage of the confusion to intentionally release a second deadly chemical.

This is the scenario for a full-scale emergency response training exercise only and not the real thing.
