Disaster response teams at Toronto City Hall
  
Toronto's Heavy Urban Search and Rescue (HUSAR) and Chemical, Biological,
Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) teams will perform demonstrations for the
Standing Senate Committee on National Security & Defense.

Date: Thursday, October 27
Time: 9 to 11:30 a.m.
Location: Nathan Phillips Square, City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

Both teams involve highly trained personnel from Toronto Fire, Police, and
Emergency Medical Services who respond to significant emergencies that may
involve structural collapse and very dangerous substances. These are
exceedingly complicated and dangerous tasks.
