BP will conduct an emergency response drill from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, November 18, at the Cherry Point Refinery.

Area residents can expect to see emergency response equipment, security vehicles and emergency response personnel.
Nearby roads will not actually close, but BP personnel will simulate the process.

Refinery-wide alarms will cycle on and off. The refinery will also be evacuated.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact BP spokesman Michael Abendhoff at abendhmr@bp.com.
