Charles City, Iowa – Yesterday, first responders in Floyd County participated in hazmat training at the Grand Building in Charles City. Lezlie Weber is Floyd County’s Emergency Management Coordinator.
The responders learned about rail cars, valves, what types of liquid and how it’s stored. The final part to the training outlined how to clean up the spill.
Brian Chambers is the fire chief at Marble Rock. He says the training is helpful because it helps update technology and puts everyone on the same page.
