Cargill Emergency Simulation

October 13, 2011
Cargill looked more like a sci-fi movie set than a meat packaging plant on Wednesday morning, as employees and officials donned brightly colored decontamination suits during a chemical disaster drill.

Roughly two dozen people from Cargill, Saline County Medical Reserve Corps, Marshall Fire Department, Marshall Police Department, Saline County Health Department and Fitzgibbon Hospital responded to a simulated chemical disaster.
