Emergency Responders Get Unique Training Opportunity

First responders and emergency room personnel from across the state are getting some hands on learning when it comes to preparing for chemical spill emergencies.

The NTC campus offered a special training session where students could be involved in a simulated emergency situation that required patients to be decontaminated.

One hospital employee says this exercise helped him prepare for a variety of situations.

"We do training like this because we are preparing for the unknown. It allows us to expand our knowledge by just thinking outside the box and looking at what might happen away from your normal severe weather or snowstorm." says student Al Davies.

This is the first time this type of training has ever been offered in Wisconsin. It attracted students from all over the state.
NTC says they hope to expand the program in the future.
