An emergency response drill will be taking place on Wednesday on Cedar Springs Road at the Akzo-Nobel facility.

David Simons, Health, Safety, Environmental, Security and Waste Management Plant Manager, told WBTV that the drill would be "as realistic as possible" in a scenario involving a chemical release from the plant.

The drill will test communications between plant personnel and local emergency services.

Residents in the area may notice an emergency response and hear sirens as part of the drill.
