October 26, 2016 – Area Public Safety and First Responders are conducting a haz-mat exercise on Levon Av near the hospital. This exercise will have several parts, but all services in the area are open according to Sgt. Womack with Truckee Police. “We will be working with our partner agencies to make sure we train for scenarios that we hope never happen, but we are prepared for” said Sgt. Womack.
Officers and VIPs are rerouting traffic on Levon Av to make sure people that need to get to the hospital or Courthouse can do so with a minimum of disruption while the exercise is occurring.
“This is just like a real event” said Sgt. Womack, “we handle the event, but try to make sure we keep local services open and running”.
