GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Over the past month, we've seen school bus accidents, hospital shootings, and now a chemical spill. They are all disaster drills required from local communities each year.
Friday's mock scenario was at Knape and Vogt, an industrial facility where a worker punctured a drum filled with a chemical and several workers were overcome by fumes.
"This is an evaluation of skills and you have to practice to stay sharp," explained Kent County Emergency Manager, Jack Stewart.
In the end, the hazmat drill is said to have gone well. If it were to happen in the near future, the emergency workers will be better prepared.
