SUBJECT OF RELEASE: Emergency Management training exercise

DATE AND TIME: Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 10:00 AM

LOCATION: Master Rd. near Coral Rd., Maple Valley Twp.

AUTHORITY/CONTACT PERSON: David Feldpausch, Montcalm County Emergency Manager

On June 21, 2017, at 10:00 AM a joint exercise was held in Montcalm County. The exercise simulated an aerial applicator (crop duster) spraying a field that had workers in it. No one was actually sprayed during this exercise and it tested the emergency response plans for DuPont/Pioneer, Heritage Aerial Application, Montcalm County Central Dispatch, Lakeview Fire, Maple Valley Fire, Stanton Fire, & Montcalm County Emergency Management.

This was an exercise to determine challenges in the response plans for all of the participants and while we do have some lessons learned the overall exercise was a huge success. I’d like to reiterate that no one was actually sprayed during this even the plane simply did a drop in to see if it could be identified by ground crews.
