First responders train for mass crash scenario

Posted:

KNOWLTON (WKOW) -- The emergency crews that responded to Tuesday's 20 car pile-up near Wausau trained for that very scenario not long ago.

In fact, the traffic incident management training was held recently in Knowlton,about a mile from where the chain-reaction crash happened.

Crews train for these situations by having a uniform response as far as who does what and getting the road cleared as quickly and safely as possible.
