TEXAS CITY — A hazardous material emergency response drill using decontamination tents and suits will take place at the Mainland Medical Center in Texas City today.

The drill, part of a HazMat Emergency Response Team course for hospitals and emergency health care professionals, is sponsored by the medical center and the Galveston County Office of Emergency Management.

The course educates first responders on how to respond to mass casualty incidents, including patient decontamination, triage assessments and the need for response teams, according to Mainland Medical Center.
