PCC to close for training exercise Saturday; volunteers needed

The Patient Care Center (PCC), 855 Montgomery St., will be closed to all students and employees on Saturday, Sept. 24, as part of an emergency preparedness training exercise designed to simulate a threat to campus.

The exercise is designed to help safety and law enforcement personnel at the Health Science Center – and first responders with the City of Fort Worth – better prepare in the event of an emergency.

UNTHSC’s Safety Office and Police Department are leading the training session in collaboration with Texas Christian University, MedStar and Fort Worth’s police and fire departments.

Volunteers are needed to role-play victims or patients. Learn more about the exercise and volunteering: http://insite.unthsc.edu/connections/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2016/09/EmergencyPrepDailyNews-1.docx
