Hamilton County Emergency Management, along with the Hamilton County Local Emergency Planning Committee, hosted a three-day training exercise Oct. 12-14 at the training grounds on River Road in Noblesville.

The full-scale exercise was designed to test and train first responders. The scenario was a simulated situation law enforcement and fire departments could encounter in Hamilton County, and assessed the tactics skills, and equipment used to respond to those situations.

The training was conducted in partnership with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Noblesville police and fire departments, Carmel police and fire departments, Westfield police and fire departments and Cicero Fire Dept.

Fishers Fire Dept., Indiana State Police, Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources and Hamilton County Public Safety Communications are part of an ongoing series of trainings to foster cooperation among the many jurisdictions represented in Hamilton County as they prepare for a variety of responses to natural and man-made disasters.
