The Halton Regional Police Emergency Services Unit regularly conducts scenario based training exercises at various locations throughout the Region. These training locations are facilitated though the generosity of corporations and private citizens.
Training in realistic environments is critical to ensuring operational readiness for specialty units within the Police Service. It is an opportunity to establish and practice leading-edge emergency preparedness measures. This is one of the goals of the Police Service and it greatly contributes to improving community safety.
On Wednesday September 30, 2015, between 5:00pm and 11:00pm, members of the Halton Regional Police will be at the newly constructed Oakville Hospital located at 3001 Hospital Gate in the Town of Oakville.
Members include officers and civilians from the Halton Regional Police Tactical Rescue Team (TRU), Canine, Explosives Disposal Unit (EDU), Mobile Command Centre, Crisis Negotiators, Search Incident Response (SIRT), EMS Tactical Medics and the Hamilton Emergency Response Unit.
Signage informing the community of this police training will be posted in the area on the street. There is no safety concern to anyone in the area and no danger present to any persons or property.
A letter informing residents and businesses in the area surrounding the hospital is presently being distributed to ensure awareness and prevent undue panic.
