Hazmat Crews Called For Dropped Thermometer 1-13-2011

The Genesee County hazmat team responded to an emergency call Thursday morning that ended up involving a dropped thermometer.
Officials said the Flint homeowner dropped the mercury-filled thermometer inside her home in the 2300 block of Ohio Avenue just before 5 a.m.
She called 911, where operators alerted the fire department who then called in the hazmat team in.
Officials said most of the mercury evaporated, but plans are in place to have the health department brought in as a precautionary measure.
No one was injured.
