Germany-based company, Bruno Bock, formerly Evans Chemetics, is partnering with the Seneca County Emergency Management Department to host an emergency preparedness drill from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at its 228 E.Main St. facility.
The exercise aims to ready local emergency response agencies for a potential hazardous materials event in the county. The site will be bustling with emergency vehicles and personnel from multiple agencies.
The drill will commence with an internal emergency alarm, signaling Bruno Bock’s emergency response team to evacuate the plant workers. The team will subsequently contact the Seneca County 911 center, prompting the dispatch of emergency service agencies to the plant.
The exercise is slated to conclude around 11 a.m. with cleanup and lunch provided by Bruno Bock to all participants.
While there will be no road closures or detours instituted for the drill, motorists are advised to exercise caution when traveling down East Main Street during the drill.
