Wisconsin Lutheran College participates in emergency response exercise with local agencies

June 7, 2006

On Wednesday, June 7, 2006, Wisconsin Lutheran College had the opportunity to play host site for a local exercise to test the emergency response capabilities of the Wauwatosa Fire and Police Departments, Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office and the West Allis and Brookfield Fire Departments.

The college also took the opportunity to also test their own emergency procedures and act as if an emergency had actually happened on campus. Volunteers played "victims" and were transferred to Froedert Memorial Lutheran Hospital and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin to test their response to a large scale crisis.
