HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Emergency responders in Huntsville plan to spend three days this week on drills to help prepare for a disaster.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/1K4BYLQ ) that Huntsville Fire & Rescue, the Huntsville Police bomb squad and the Alabama National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team out of Montgomery plan to begin the training Tuesday.

The agenda includes mock chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear disaster scenarios.

Capt. Frank McKenzie, spokesman for the fire department, said the exercise is a good chance for different agencies to come together and learn about each other’s abilities.
