Emergency Preparedness Training Exercise

Grand County Office of Emergency Management in coordination with the Northwest Region Incident Management Team will be conducting a 2-day emergency response training exercise. You may see heavier than normal emergency response activity throughout the county on May 5th and 6th. For this exercise, a scenario is presented to participating agencies and they respond as they would in a normal emergency incident. Emergency vehicles will not be running emergent to ensure safety. Each agency has identified plans and certain capabilities that they want to test, evaluate and potentially improve upon.
These types of exercises allow the county, local agencies and regional partners the opportunity to train and work together to strengthen preparedness and response capabilities to emergency incidents.
The Public Alert and Warning system, CodeRed will also be tested during this exercise. Community members can expect to receive a TEST emergency alert on their mobile devices and land lines. This is an annual test that has been built into this exercise to test and ensure the public is receiving emergency notifications.
For additional emergency preparedness information or questions, please contact Emergency Manager, Nowell Curran ncurran@co.grand.co.us 970-887-2732
