Recently, two employees of the Grandview School District, who also serve in the 792nd Chemical Company of the Washington Army National Guard, were deployed to Alaska for Operation Arctic Eagle which was a statewide exercise involving national, state and local agencies designed to provide opportunities for 1,100 participants to conduct sustained operations in arctic conditions during a simulated catastrophic event. However, during the exercise, a real-world event almost had a catastrophic result when an overturned fuel truck spilled between 8 and 9 thousand gallons of fuel that threatened the local environment.
