Local Fertilizer Plant Reviews Safety Plan

Local Fertilizer Plant Reviews Safety Plan

Posted: Updated:

A fertilizer plant in Summerdale- like the plant involved in the deadly Texas explosion- is reviewing its safety plan.

The manager of Crop Production Services invited local leaders and first responders for a tour of the plant.

Manager Abby Taylor says CPS doesn't produce fertilizer- they blend it.

Taylor says they don't use ammonium nitrate- which can be dangerous- the plant uses straight nitrogen fertilizer, post ash, lime and other blends.

First responders were impressed the company's emergency action plan.
