Preview: Disaster drill training


JASPER, Ala. (WIAT) — A regional disaster training drill is underway in Jasper.

The Alabama Department of Homeland Security is sponsoring a simulated toxic waste spill and jail riot both happening at the same time.

More than one hundred 1st-responders from across northwest Alabama are participating.

Several roads in downtown Jasper are closed due to the simulation.

17th Street between 2nd Avenue and Alabama Avenue, 1st Avenue between 14th Street and 17th Street, 14th Street at Alabama Avenue and 15th Street at Alabama Avenue are closed.

CBS42’s Melissa Crabtree will have more on the drills tonight on CBS42 News.
