On Tuesday, June 20, 2017, and Thursday, June 22, 2017, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office will host active violence / mass casualty incident training at Hughes Stadium located at 2011 South Overland Trail in Fort Collins.  The training will start at 8:00 a.m. and end around 5:00 p.m. both days.  There will be a large number of law enforcement and emergency vehicles in the area.  Residents and visitors to the area can expect to hear loud noises to simulate gunshots / explosions and may see smoke. 

These exercises are focused on providing consistent training, familiarization with other agencies in the area, mutual aid / resource mobilization, and to facilitate a smooth, coordinated effort should an active violence or mass casualty incident occur in Larimer County.  Personnel from LCSO, Timnath Police Department, Colorado State University Police Department, Colorado State Patrol, Larimer County Park Rangers, Poudre Fire Authority, Windsor Severance Fire Rescue, Loveland Fire Rescue Authority, and UC Health / Poudre Valley EMS will participate in this training. 

Training signs will be posted around the property to alert residents and visitors to the training.  Please avoid the area until the training exercises are complete and all emergency vehicles have left the area.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as these agencies participate in this vital public safety training.
