Fake Eagle Mine accident to draw emergency agencies

Jun 13, 2018

HUMBOLDT TOWNSHIP, MI--   Eagle Mine is partnering with several Marquette County agencies to train for and test the local emergency response system Wednesday afternoon. 

At 2 p.m. emergency vehicles will travel to the Humboldt Mill with lights and sirens on as part of a simulated safety incident. Simulation participants sporting fabricated injuries will be placed at the accident scene. Members of the Eagle Mine Emergency Response Team and the G42 Security Team will initially respond to prepare people for local agencies.

Drivers on US-41, M-95, or County Road 601 may notice a number of emergency vehicles traveling to or from the Humboldt Mill for the simulation.

Participating agencies also include UPHS-Marquette, UPHS-Bell, the Ishpeming Township Fire and Police departments, Champion Township Fire and EMS departments, the Humboldt Township Fire Department, and Marquette County Emergency Management.
