HAZMAT response to Disneyland; No threat found
A Hazmat team found no threat after they responded to Disneyland early Sunday morning when some employees detected a chemical odor, according to Anaheim and park officials.
A handful of castmembers noticed the smell of chlorine at Rivers of America at about 4 a.m. and called the Anaheim Fire Department out of an abundance of caution, a Disney official said.
Anaheim Fire and rescue responded to Disneyland regarding a chemical odor related to the water treatment, Anaheim Police Department spokesman Shane Carringer said.
Officials examined 15 people at the scene and one person was transported out of caution, according to Carringer.
“The transported patient complained of dizziness,” he said, but no shortness of breath.
Anaheim Fire officials tested the area and found no chemical presence, including zero chlorine in the air, Carringer said.
There was no impact to the parks and operations were planned as normal, the Disney official said.
