Country Emergency Training Exercise Taking Place at Wellness Center

Area first responders and local hospitals are participating in a Johnson County Emergency Management training exercise at the University of Iowa Campus Wellness and Recreation Center (CRWC) at approximately 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019.

The event, centered around the Wellness Center at 309 S. Madison St., is an exercise to help train multiple jurisdictions on how to best respond to an incident involving an armed assailant, and is not a real emergency. The goal of this exercise is to make the medical and law enforcement response as realistic as possible for those involved.

For additional information and a closure map, please see the UI Department of Public Safety website.
