Training for the worst
Le Mars Fire-Rescue and Emergency Services first responders held a special Haz-Mat training exercise at the Wells South Plant on Wednesday as part of their weekly training.
The training was a joint simulated ammonia leak drill. In addition to the fire trucks and rescue vehicles that were on site Wednesday night, the training also featured the use of a smoke machine to simulate the ammonia leak.
Wells staff and LMR donned Haz-Mat suits to handle the simulated leak.
