Disaster Drill Today
A disaster drill is scheduled for this afternoon (May 10) at Michigan Tech. The University's Department of Public Safety and Police Services and the Incident Command Team, Houghton Police and Fire Departments, the Houghton County Sheriff and Emergency Management Office, UP Health System-Portage, Aspirus Keweenaw and Mercy Ambulance all will participate.
Do not be alarmed if you hear sirens and see emergency vehicles on campus. This is just a drill. The purpose of such drills is to practice emergency response and coordination among all the agencies that might be involved in a real crisis situation.
