La Salle fire chief says emergency drill went very well

Posted by wlpo on April 23, 2010

A mock tornado and chemical spill kept gave La Salle Fire Fighters and other emergency responders a chance to test what they know.  It’s also given La Salle Fire Chief Andy Bacidore an idea of corrections that need to be made.

Bacidore coordinated Thursday night’s drill that involved area fire departments and ambulance services.  He says it went well in that it uncovered a lot of corrections they would need to make in the city’s plan and mutual aid systems.  He says they hit some bumps in the road, but that’s why they did the drill.  He thinks it will be awhile before they come up with changes.

As for the people who participated, he says he’s getting positive feedback.
