|Emergency response exercise training seeks volunteers|
Volunteers of all ages are sought for a train accident drill in Grand Forks. Volunteers will play the role of passengers aboard a train derailment. Police, fire, EMS, Red Cross, etc. will practice coming to aid. No prior experience is necessary. You may be trained to act the part of an injured/frightened passenger. Some will be transported by ambulance; others will walk away. Children under 16 years of age need to be accompanied by an adult. The drill takes place from 7:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the BNSF Roundhouse, 1796 DeMers Ave., Grand Forks.
