Public Safety Simulation/Exercise
Colorado State University hosts training for emergency responders
CSU is partnering with emergency responders in the city and county in a training exercise from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 14.
The exercise will simulate a high number of injuries and fatalities from a gunman on the CSU campus and is intended to provide local safety and health officials with a realistic situation in which to practice their response and teamwork. This training will involve landing a medical helicopter on campus.
The simulation will be held south of the Durrell Center on Plum Street/North Drive and will involve Colorado State University Police Department and other University emergency responders, Poudre Fire Authority, Fort Collins Police Services, Larimer County Sherriff's Department and Poudre Valley Health Systems.
Limited access to streets during training
Access to the Durrell Center and areas of Moby, including the North concourse, will be restricted during the exercise, and the recreational fields also will be used during part of the exercise. A portion of Plum Street, from Shields Street to the Corbett Hall parking lot, also will be blocked off to accommodate the exercise. These areas will be reopened as soon as possible after the conclusion of the exercise.
