Campus practices for emergency it hopes never comes
July 17, 2014
As part of a full-scale campus emergency-response exercise, members of the UW-Madison Police Department, Madison Fire and Police Departments, Dane County Sheriff’s Office, FBI and other regional agencies respond to mock reports of a simulated bomb incident with wounded victims during a running event at Camp Randall Stadium.
As part of the exercise, more than 75 designated staff -- responsible for activities ranging from consolidating information from at-the-scene police, to logistical coordination, to communicating to the public -- reported to an Emergency Operation Center.
Key university and agency officials, including Chancellor Rebecca Blank (second from right) rehearse their statements prior to leading a mock news conference regarding the simulated incident.
