Firefighting agencies in Stanislaus County will be conducting an exercise Saturday, simulating a weapon of mass destruction incident to better prepare themselves.
About 150 firefighting personnel will be participating in several undisclosed locations throughout the county, including a school, a warehouse and a wildland environment.
The exercise will include a search and rescue, a WMD and hazardous materials incident, a building fire and a wildfire.
The exercise also will cover required annual training for firefighters to maintain certification to respond to statewide emergencies.
