Authorities Practice Decontamination Drill

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in central Iowa are practicing decontamination procedures in case of a bioterrorism threat or industrial contamination event.

The Polk County Health Department and other local agencies, including a county emergency management team, will participate in the preparedness drill Thursday morning at a post office in Des Moines. Des Moines Police and the fire department also will participate, and streets will be closed as a potential crime scene will be sectioned off.

Various local, state and federal agencies will role play their plans, which include medication components. Officials say the drills are held periodically as part of an effort to keep the public safe. They say it helps emergency responders practice and perfect their skills in case a contamination event ever occurs.
