An emergency response exercise is planned Friday morning at Texas Health Kaufman hospital.

The exercise is planned to focus on decontamination of patients exposed to an unknown chemical.

The exercise is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. followed by a 30-minute evaluation.

Hospital personnel may be present outside the facility in protective equipment, and a decontamination tent will be set up.

The exercise is planned to measure decontamination capabilities, communications, patient tracking and business continuity plan implementation.
