MERRIMACK, NH — Dozens of people working at Merrimack plant were treated by first-responders Tuesday after emergency crews responded to Spraying Systems on Daniel Webster Highway.
No serious injuries were reported.
Merrimack Fire Chief Mike Currier explained that fire and rescue crews were called in after a chemical powder used in the lab that was mislabeled by the vendor created a haz-mat incident.
“The powder material which is part of a process wasn’t reacting correctly, and since it was an unknown, we made the decision to evacuate,” Currier said.
The HVAC system inside the lab area was shut down while testing of offices was done. Currier said the air quality appeared to be safe.
