Bridgestone will be the focus of a large-scale mock emergency drill this Thursday, Jan. 23, at 9 a.m. The effort will be to sharpen training and preparedness skills.“We want to alert the public this is only a drill,” said Bridgestone representative Carol Rose. “We don’t want to upset anyone who has a family member working at the plant.”The need for industrial safety preparedness was illustrated earlier this week in Omaha, Neb., when there was an explosion at the International Nutrition plant Monday morning. Two people died and 10 others were hospitalized with serious injuries.
