Terrorism drill set for Reno this week

By  | 

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Multiple agencies will be participating in a three day emergency preparedness drill this week, November 12 - 14, 2019.

The exercise titled "Silver Crucible 2019" will test the statewide emergency preparedness response in dealing with a coordinated terrorist attack.

The drill locations will include the Washoe County Regional Emergency Operations Center, The UNR Redfield Campus, Pickett Park and the Reno Ballroom.

The training exercise is meant to mirror real life situations, so some of the participants will have realistic looking makeup wounds, also known as moulage.

Washoe County stresses, it is only a drill and you should not be alarmed by the activities.
