Protecting Our Mail From Anthrax
Cedar Rapids, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) Today (Thursday), you might see parts of a Cedar Rapids road blocked off and emergency workers dealing with biohazard equipment; but it's just a drill.
Postal workers in the Corridor will be getting some hands-on training to combat a scary possibility.
The Cedar Rapids Police and Fire Departments will team up with the post office, to hold an exercise on how to deal with an anthrax attack.
They'll be testing a tool called the Biohazard Detection System which finds biological threats that could run through our mail.
The drill will take place between 9 and 11 Thursday morning and will close 7th street from 6th to 8th Ave SE.
