New Hampton, Iowa – A chemical spill shut down a street in New Hampton last month. The Mercy Medical Center is now putting on a one hour class to teach people the procedures if this happens.
The class will be held on Sep. 7. Jenny Monteith, public relations director at Mercy, says more about why this class is happening.
The class runs from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. The hope is that people gain an understanding of the regulations pertaining to decontamination.
There will be a lunch provided on this day. It will take place in the Health Education Center inside the hospital. They are no longer taking RSVPs.
