Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Two West Virginia explosions are getting featured roles in a safety video produced by the National Chemical Safety Board.

The video discusses the need for emergency preparedness and focuses on various accident investigations conducted by the board.

West Virginia explosions featured are the January 2007 explosion at the little General Convenience Store in Ghent and last August's explosion at the Bayer Cropscience Plant in Institute.

The Ghent explosion is used to illustrate the need for proper training and the Bayer explosion is used as an example for better communication with emergency responders.

Four people died in the Ghent explosion and two in the Bayer blast.

The video can be viewed on the board's web site, www.csb.gov.
