Coast Guard Hazmat Drill Challenges Participants

They included personnel from Coast Guard Training Center Cape May (N.J.) and state and local emergency responders .

A simulated car accident on the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey was the basis of a Sept. 12 hazmat drill for federal, state, and local responders. The exercise took place at Coast Guard Training Center Cape May, according to a report posted on a Coast Guard news site.

The participants took air quality readings during a scenario that included a smoking truck with chemicals aboard, a passenger vehicle with radiological materials aboard, and a victim trapped in a confined space.

"This was an excellent opportunity for local, state and federal emergency response partners to work together and hone our skills as responders," said Chris Walters, chief of the training center's fire department. "The exercise scenario required us to come together as a team to mitigate any potential risk to the community."
