GREAT FALLS — The Calumet refinery in Great Falls will conduct an evacuation drill exercise at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, November 12.

The drill is expected to last about one hour, according to a press release from the company.

People may hear the whistle used in this drill with a series of blasts and one long blast, and should not be alarmed. This is only a drill exercise and there is no emergency.

Calumet regularly practices response drills with partner agencies to prepare for spills, fires, severe weather events, and other challenges that may impact plant operations.

The refinery is located Smelter Avenue near the intersection with the 9th Street Bridge.
