Des Moines, IOWA — Tomorrow afternoon, December 18, 2012, the Iowa Department of Public Safety in partnership with many local, state and federal partners, will execute a training exercise at the State of Iowa Capitol. This exercise will center on effective response and resolution to incidents which involve a suspicious package with unknown biological or chemical material.

Members of the media and public are advised this is a training exercise. If you see any activity or emergency vehicles at the State Capitol between 6:00 PM and 11:30 PM, no panic or public concern is necessary.

Participants in the exercise include the Iowa National Guard 71st CST; Des Moines Fire/HazMat; Department of Public Safety’s Divisions of the Iowa State Patrol, Intelligence, and State Fire Marshal; Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management; State Hygienic Lab; United States Postal Inspection Service; Federal Bureau of Investigation.
