Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A mock energy summit in Fargo is the backdrop for training that involves more than 100 emergency responders.

Civil support teams from three states have joined with local police, fire, and HAZMAT teams for the exercise. It centers around an imaginary World Energy Forum taking place in the metro area. Today, they swept the FargoDome to look for signs of radiological devices.

Leon Schlafmann - Fargo Emergency Manager: "It brings the players together, as far as CST and the fire department and local players, so they get to work together and see the equipment that each other have, and they don't have that meeting on the incident instead of on the training ground."
