Two rescue drills planned in the Chippewa Valley for Wednesday

(WEAU) - Just a heads up if you see a lot of activity, there are a couple of high profile rescue drills Wednesday.

The Eau Claire County Swat Team is using the former St. Joseph's Convent building from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday in Chippewa Falls near the hospital. The swat team will be practicing forced entry through the outside doors. The building is set for demolition later this summer.

Also on Wednesday, the Chippewa Fire District will be doing a drill at the Tank Farms in Lake Hallie off Highways 29 and 53. It's happening at 7 p.m. and firefighters say you'll see a lot of emergency crews there but it's just practice.
