Lafayette General Medical Center will be conducting drills Wednesday to prepare themselves in the event of a chemical exposure incident.

Daryl Cetnar from LGMC said the drills are part of annual training required by the state, and no one should be worried or alarmed.

"You'll see a lot of activity. You'll see some people in [HazMat] suits. But there is absolutely nothing to worry about," Cetnar said.

Hospital services will not be disrupted, Cetnar said, and extra staff is being scheduled to help with the drill.

The drills allow hospital staff to prepare various scenarios to ensure they'll be able to act effectively in the event of a real-life emergency.  An after action report will give leaders an idea on what went well and on what things they need to improve on.
