First responders hold drill at fairgrounds


Multiple first responders and county agencies participated in a hazardous materials drill Thursday morning at the county fairgrounds. A part of the fairgrounds served as a mock setting of Monument Square. The drill involved a crash resulting in a hazardous material leaking onto the roadway and threatening waterways. The drill was coordinated by the Local Emergency Planning Committee and will be evaluated by the Ohio Emergency Management Agency.
