Ammonia Leak Training
Fire chief Dave Schipper says he was pleased with the performance of his crew, and of the employees of Dean's Foods. Schipper says Dean's Foods held an employee evacuation prior to the arrival of the fire and rescue units, and everyone was accounted for in the training session. The LeMars Fire official says it was a good training excercise.
Schipper says sometimes communications among all groups can prove to be trouble-some, but last evening, he said if there was a surprise, it was the fact the communications worked so well.
Schipper served as incident commander, a role that allows him to direct the various crews, as well as step back and analyze the performances.
The LeMars Fire Chief hopes that similar training sessions can become an annual event for the safety of Dean Foods employees and for the safety of the LeMars community.
