Fremont police to hold training Friday at Ohlone College

If you hear loud noises and see lights flashing Friday near Ohlone College, don’t be alarmed, says the Fremont PD. Here’s their announcement:

On Friday, August 15, 2014, from approximately 7:00 a.m. – 11:30 p.m., the City of Fremont’s Police and Fire Departments will conduct a joint training exercise at Ohlone College, located on the 43600 block of Mission Blvd.

The training will involve a large number of police and fire personnel at the school campus. The purpose of this specialized training is to enhance the ability of our Fire and Police departments to jointly respond to major acts of violence.  Part of the training involves expanding the delivery of medical aid during high risk situations.   This partnership is of great benefit to those we serve and is a core component of our mission to provide the highest level of public safety to our community.

During the training, you may see public safety vehicles driving on the campus with emergency lights flashing and limited occasional pyrotechnics will be used to simulate the noise and smoke of an incident.  Training safety during this exercise is of the utmost importance to us.  The training site will be secure and will not be open to the public, press or media.   The theater performance scheduled for Friday evening on the campus will not be affected.  We appreciate your understanding and have structured the training to limit the impact on the surrounding community.
