One Earth Energy conducted and emergency response drill to exercise various community resources on September 12th.
Participating in the drill were the Gibson City Fire Protection District, Gibson Area Ambulance Service, Gibson Area Hospital, Gibson City Police Department, Ford County Sheriff's Office, Ford County Emergency Management Agency, Ford County Public Health Department, Saybrook Fire Department and the One Earth Energy emergency response team.
The drill simulated a dryer fire as an employee of One Earth energy found fire coming out of a dryer and called the control room to set up an emergency response.
The control room supervisor called 911, put the plant into recirculation and had an employee to and shut down the natural gas.
Incident command was set up, and evacuation with a personnel head count was done with One Earth's fire pump being turned on.
Gibson City firefighters arrived and were directed to the scene to set up. Gibson City firefighters started to spray down the fire and also called in the Saybrook Fire Department for assistance.
During fire operations, a firefighter went down who needed assistance to get to the Saybrook First Responders, who started to threat the fireman until the ambulance arrived. The firefighter was transported to Gibson Area Hospital for treatment.
During the drill, the Gibson City Police Department and Ford County Sheriff's Office took care of watching the perimeter of the plant and setting up road blocks. The Saybrook Fire Department did rehab monitoring of the Gibson City fire Department.
The drill was them terminated, and all participants in the drill had a debriefing on how the drill went and to voice any concerns that were present.
"We are pleased to have these types of resources in our community, just in case we need them" said Steve Kelly, president of One Earth Energy. "Our process is very safe, but it is important that we exercise our responders as well as our internal team so we are prepared", said Kelly.
The drill was prepared and managed by Safety First of Urbana and the Safety Manager of One Earth Energy.

Norfolk Southern awards One Earth Energy a chemical customer for safe rail-shipping practices.
Norfolk Southern has awarded 60 chemical customers its Thoroughbred Chemical Safety Award for 2015. The companies safely transported on Norfolk Southern's rail lines 224,660 carloads of chemical product that the federal government regulates as hazardous.
Norfolk Southern developed the safety award 20 years ago to recognize customers for their safe handling of chemical shipments. The award goes to chemical manufacturers and plants that ship at least 1,000 carloads of hazardous products over the railroad without a single incident for the year.
Norfolk Southern works closely with chemical customers, including providing on-site training in safe rail-shipping practices, to ensure these commodities reach their destination safely.
