Chattanooga agencies practice what would happen if post office found anthrax letter
Local emergency response workers practiced how to respond to a biohazard threat at the Shallowford Road Post Office on Wednesday and tested their overall response plan. The drill specifically tested how the center would respond to an anthrax attack, like the one that killed five people in the U.S. in 2001. "What that's doing is simulating what would happen if a suspicious package found its way into our facility," said David Walton, a spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service.
