Raising awareness of suspicious powder incidents

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Recent white powder scares have kept hazmat crews in Palm Beach County suited up at least 6 times in the past 3 months.

The most recent incident was at the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office in the first week of January.

Fox 29 was on the scene as a firefighter and 3 mailroom employees were taken to a hospital, after a letter containing a substance was opened, but found not to be hazardous.

Investigators hope white powder reports will decline, as the public learns to take precautions when using or carrying substances that could cause a scare.
