The Great Lakes are one of Michigan's greatest treasures, but what if there was a major oil, or chemical spill?

There's a training happening this week in the Straits of Mackinac, preparing for just that.

The Oil-In-Ice Drill is expected to get underway Wednesday near St. Ignace.

Today, 9&10 News caught up with agencies involved as they loaded up ships with equipment.

9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Eric Davis have more details on what the training's all about.
