Firefighters, police, as well as municipal and industrial emergency responders from across Lambton County and Aamjiwnaang First Nation were put to the test on May 22 in dealing with a simulated collision between a diesel hauler and a propane hauler as part of the annual Sarnia Area Disaster Simulation (SADS).

Nearly 200 participants took part in the field exercise, led by the Sarnia Fire Department with support from Aamjiwnaang, industry, contractors, regulatory authorities and emergency response teams.
