Hazmat Training Involving Railcars
By Major Keith Smith
July 7, 2017

A recent Monday evening training attended by Ballardsville Fire & Rescue, LaGrange Fire & Rescue, South Oldham Fire Department and Oldham County EMS was well attended and a welcome refresher for both Technician and Operations Level HAZMAT operations.

Three separate days of classes were held in order to accommodate all departments in the county. Oldham County has a large volume of rail traffic that operates through the area, including the more populated city's of Crestwood, La Grange and Pewee Valley.

Many thanks to Major Tom Puckett of Oldham County EMS and Major Matt Nelson of South Oldham Fire Department for the excellent instruction that was provided.
