Hazmat Training Today At The V.A.

If you see fire and rescue vehicles and suburbans pulling satellite dishes in and out of the VA campus today, there is no cause for concern. Marion County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson tells KNIA and KRLS News that a hazmat training exercise is now ongoing with local first responders and the Iowa National Guard 71st Civil Support Unit from Des Moines. The exercise began at 4:30 this morning. VA Police tell KNIA and KRLS News that the area in which the training is taking place is restricted.
