UC Davis fire and police personnel will train for three days this week — starting today (Aug. 29) — on responding to an active shooter incident, to be staged in and around the unoccupied northeast wing of Haring Hall at the corner of Storer Mall and California Avenue.

Most of the field training will take place inside the building. You may see role players with simulated wounds and injuries, and you also should expect to see police and fire vehicles outside. Storer Mall will be open as usual.

Field training is scheduled from about 9 to 11 a.m. today, Wednesday (Aug. 31) and Thursday (Sept. 1). Fire and police will gather earlier, at the Police Department or Emergency Operations Center, to review tactics, communications and safety procedures.
