An emergency services exercise will be held at Northern Michigan University this morning. It is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in the academic mall area of campus.
NMU Public Safety will be joined by area fire departments, EMS, law enforcement and other relevant entities to test coordinated response, evacuation and communication strategies after a mock explosion with casualties.
Marquette General Hospital will also test its ability to accommodate and treat a surge of burn patients arriving at once. The exercise will help to evaluate emergency operations plans of the university, city and county.
Tune in to ABC 10 News Now at 5:30 pm for a full report on the exercise.
