Hazardous Material Spills and Response

Joining us to look at the danger of hazmat spills in our region, and how local emergency agencies respond to them, are Cincinnati Enquirer investigative reporter James Pilcher, and William Turner, director of the Campbell County, Kentucky Office of Emergency Management.
