From Lakiesha McGhee:
Sierra College's Rocklin campus will be the site Wednesday of a multiagency emergency response exercise as the college tests its preparedness with a "lockdown" drill.
Area agencies will respond to a simulation of a “multiple-casualty incident,” which will take place in a closed section of the campus, according to a college news release.
Residents should not be alarmed if they see an unusual number of police vehicles, firetrucks, ambulances and even helicopters in the area, college officials said.
The exercise will last about three hours in the morning and will minimally affect the flow of traffic on routes to and from the campus at 5000 Rocklin Road.
The exercise is being organized by the Rocklin Police and Fire departments under a grant from the state Office of Homeland Security.
Questions or concerns should be directed to the Sierra College Public Information Office, (916) 789-2668 or (916) 781-0411.
