Boone County’s Office of Emergency Management and other mid-Missouri law enforcement agencies are alerting motorists that they will see a high volume of first responders near Highways 63 and 54 in northern Jefferson City this afternoon.
It’s all part of a hazardous material training exercise, and will take place from 1-4. The Columbia fire department, Jefferson City fire department, Holts Summit fire department and the Cole County Sheriff’s department are just a few of the agencies that will be participating today.
You’re being asked to not call 911, unless you’re reporting an actual emergency. The training will take place in the old Cedar City neighborhood, and the Boone County Office of Emergency Management says it’s open to the public.
