Training to be offered for emergency responders

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Clay County Fire Chiefs and Ceres Solutions are sponsoring training for the emergency responder about the fertilizer anhydrous ammonia.

This was the product involved in the Clay County Local Emergency Planning Committee tabletop exercise held last December.

The Anhydrous Ammonia (Nh3) training session will take place today, at 6:30 p.m., at the Clay County 4-H Fairgrounds, located south on State Road 59 in Brazil.

The instructor will be Chief Phil Pirtle, fire chief and fire instructor at Waynetown, Ind.

The class will last about two hours and will include a cut away wagon to show what the inside of the portable tanks look like.

Those attending are asked to bring sign off sheets if you need training hours. Responders from surrounding mutual aid departments are also invited.

Reservations are not necessary, but an expected number from each responder organization would help make sure we have enough chairs set up.
