“Because the LSC is closed while it is being remodeled, it gives local emergency responders a rare opportunity to practice working together in a large, complex building,” said Ken Quintana, CSU’s emergency management coordinator.

Participating agencies include CSUPD, Poudre Valley Fire Authority, Poudre Valley Hospital, Loveland Fire Rescue Authority and Windsor-Severance Fire Rescue. Firefighters and police officers will practice search and rescue techniques, forcible entry, interagency collaboration and response systems.
