Sheriff’s Report

The Park Record,

The Park City Fire District responded to a possible hazmat poisoning at Kimball Junction on Thursday when a FedEx driver was experiencing difficulty breathing after she attempted to clean up a package that was leaking in her truck, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s call logs.

According to Assistant Fire Chief Bob Zanetti, Park City Fire was dispatched at approximately 1:57 p.m. after the female driver went into the Redstone Health Center, in Newpark, and complained of difficulty breathing.

Zanetti said the woman had reportedly attempted to put the leaky package in another bag and clean up the unknown liquid, when it got on her hands and arms.

The Park City Fire hazmat team entered the truck with full-structural and personal protective equipment to handle the package, Zanetti said. But it didn’t take the hazmat team long to identify the liquid, which was discovered to be a water-based cleaner.

"It really wasn’t a harmful product," Zanetti said.

However, as a precaution, the woman was transported to Park City Medical Center for observation.
