Pulaski County Commissioners Approve Updated Hazardous Material Response Plan

An updated hazardous material emergency response plan was approved by the Pulaski County Commissioners last week. Emergency Management Agency Director Sheri Gaillard said the plan is almost the same as last year’s version. “The only additions to it or changes to it were training dates for hazardous material,” she explained, “and the Winamac fire chief and the Francesville fire chief were changed.”

Additionally, she said the updated plan more clearly defines what a basic incident command system is. The address of the Emergency Operations Center was updated to reflect the EMA’s move to the West Annex, and the total number of county ambulances was changed from four to three.
