    (NECN: Katelyn Tivnan) - It may have looked like a disaster at UMass Memorial Medical Center Thursday, but it was only a drill. It was all about decontamination efforts.

    Gina Smith is the emergency preparedness director for the hospital. She says the goal is to practice treating those patients quickly. But, at the same time not contaminating the responders or the emergency room itself.
