Emergency management officials review plans to deal with fertilizer plants incidents

PULASKI, WI (WTAQ) - The explosion of a fertilizer plant in Texas has some Wisconsin emergency planners revisiting their plans for storage facilities like the one flattened by a blast last week.

Pulaski is home to a plant where dry fertilizer, liquid fertilizer, propane, diesel fuel, gasoline and anhydrous ammonia are all stored.

Brown County emergency management officials say most of the village of Pulaski would be vulnerable to a similar disaster.

The Pulaski fire station is right in the middle of the vulnerability zone.

That site is actually only one of 130 such locations with dangerous chemicals in Brown County.
