A massive emergency response exercise is scheduled for the Chicago area beginning Sunday.

The practice events spread over five days will include a simulated commercial airplane crash, a simulated rail car evacuation and a simulated terrorist attack.

Road closures and detours are possible in the Chicago area.

"It is a full-scale exercise, so residents can expect to see emergency responders looking and acting as if this was a real homeland security/domestic response mission," the Illinois Army and Air National Guard said in a press release.

Simulated explosion of Nalco plant.

Interesting.

Thanks for posting this, I haven't heard anything about these activities being planned until I saw you're thread


This is something that I would expect our city officials to make us aware of well before the fact. But then again what can we expect from Daley


I'm gonna have to make sure and tell my son about this, he works right there where they're planning on doing the raid on a simulated meth lab.

I wonder why they are doing so much of this in Bensonville


I also wonder if there is a specific reason behind all of this type of training right now. Although it is the time of year when the Guard does it's yearly extensive training.

Since Las Vegas turned them down on being the host city for the exercises, I guess they had to rely upon their close Chicago connection. As you know, it just so happens that Bensenville is directly adjacent to O'Hare airport. Very busy area!

Weird, this guy in my class is in the national guard, three days ago they told him to drop everything and report for duty. It might be nothing, but it's something to keep an eye on.
