Meth Lab Training for First Responders

Listen to this story
Many of the safety risks from methamphetamine labs are borne by firemen, EMTs and police. The Center for Disease Control says that first responders suffer 51% of the injuries caused by meth lab accidents. Often it's because they don't know they're entering a meth lab. They respond to an emergency call without knowing that dangerous chemicals are involved. Marty Hasset directs SUNY Canton's Emergency Management Training Center. They're hosting workshops for first responders and members of the public to teach them how to recognize a meth lab. The first workshop is Wednesday, December 14th from 7-9 pm.
