Emergency Exercise on Campus Today

JCUEMS and the University Heights Fire Department are conducting a “mass casualty incident” drill this morning in the Dolan Science Center and the quad area north of the building. The drill will take place between 9am and 3pm.

The drill will include persons with make-up to simulate various injuries, and responders reacting as they would in a real crisis.  There will be fire, EMS and police staff, vehicles and equipment in the area. This exercise aims to prepare University and local responders to better respond during a real crisis.

Don’t be alarmed if you see what appears to an emergency around the Dolan Science Center this Sunday – it is only a drill.
