BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A study of hazardous cargoes passing through northern Kentucky is intended to give first responders a better idea of potential hazards as they respond to crashes.
Results of the study were released to firefighters, police and other first responders during a meeting at the Boone County Operations Center in Burlington on Thursday, according to The Kentucky Enquirer ( http://bit.ly/ocau4h ).
The report by EHS Rescue Group was commissioned by the Northern Kentucky Emergency Planning Committee and provides a snapshot of what hazards firefighters, police, medics and other personnel could face in event of a crash. The roads studied were Interstate 75 in Kenton County, U.S. 25 and U.S. 423 in Boone County and two locations of the AA Highway in Campbell County.
