Weather Alert:

Hazardous Materials “Farewell” Tabletop Exercise

The MCLA Department of Public Safety is conducting a tabletop exercise which will simulate a mass casualty incident involving a train derailment adjacent the college. The derailment results in the release of gas from a chemical transport car, with multiple students and others complaining of headaches and nausea. The Farewell Tabletop Exercise will help public safety entities, first responders, and institutions of education better prepare for a Mass Casualty Incident. This exercise will also serve to further strengthen the critical relationships between and among first responders, public health, civic institutions, volunteer corps, and others.

This exercise is geared toward MCLA staff assigned to ICS positions, City of North Adams First Responders, DPW, and Board of Health as well as other Northern Berkshire County BOHs, First Responders, Public and Private School Officials, the Regional Hazmat Team, and others.

Backfill and overtime reimbursement is available. Lunch will be provided.
