The exercise was held at the Power Station #4 on Powder Mill Road in Marquette. The exercise included the Michigan National Guard Civil Support Team out of downstate Battle Creek. The team specializes in hazardous material and weapons of mass destruction containment and support.
Organizers of the training say the exercise served as a good opportunity for local first responders to interact and learn from this specialized unit in action.
