Chemical Spill Exercise Today In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on August 1, 2013

There will be a lot of action today on Canal Road between Ottawa and Marseilles today but no reason to be alarmed.

Firefighters, police departments, Red Cross and railroad officials are among the groups taking part in a drill at Sabic Innovative Plastics, or what used to be GE Plastics.  La Salle County Emergency Management Director Connie Brooks says they’re practicing response to a chemical accident.

People living along or working on Canal Road can come and go as usual.  Brooks says the drill will last until around 2 this afternoon.
