Are you Ready?
In the wake of the West, Tx nitrogen plant disaster, we look in our own backyard to learn what Hutchinson County is doing to prepare for a disaster. Danny Richards of the Hutchinson County Emergency Operations Center says that there are many things you can do to prepare yourself for the few concerns that Agrium could face. "Our biggest concern is a release of anhydrous ammonia, not an explosion". Shelter In Place is the program Hutchinson County has prepared, which means simply close your doors and windows and shut off your air conditioning.
