City plans emergency rehearsal

Police, firefighters, ambulance and hospital staff will take part in an emergency planning exercise in Birmingham next Sunday (October 30) to assess how well prepared the City is in the event of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear incident.
The emergency staff will be joined by 100 volunteers playing the part of injured and uninjured survivors.
Some will be put through a decontamination procedure and taken to hospitals or survivor centres – just as they would should a real emergency occur.
