Emergency Training Exercise Sunday, Feb. 5

University of Dayton employees, public safety officers and emergency medical services will conduct a simulated mass casualty preparedness drill at RecPlex from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5.

RecPlex will be closed to visitors on Sunday morning in preparation for the event and will reopen at 3 p.m. 

Anyone in the area during this time should be aware activity is part of a scheduled exercise, and not an actual active shooter scenario. The outdoor training involving public safety and emergency medical services will take place between noon and 12:45 p.m.
