Southborough to hold hands-on emergency training drill

Southborough-large-web-iconSouthborough – The Town of Southborough Emergency Services Departments, in conjunction with the UMass/Memorial Medical Center – Marlborough Hospital, will be conducting a hands-on training drill at 28 Newton Street, Southborough (the Southborough Medical Group building) from 12 – 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

This drill will exercise and challenge the staff employed at the UMass/Memorial suite located at 28 Newton Street and Southborough Fire, Police and Emergency Medical Services (EMS), as well as various other assisting local, regional and state departments/agencies (on and off site).

The physical hands-on scope of the drill will entail a hazardous materials incident with a subsequent mass-causality incident and be limited to 60 – 90 minutes. There will be a narrow focus on the pre-established goals and objectives of the drill.

It should be noted that the drill will utilize live radio transmissions throughout the drill. Such communications will be preceded by the statement: “This is a Drill.”

Newton Street will be open to through traffic, but motorist are asked to use caution. When possible, motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Southborough Medical Group will be accessible at all times and operate normally with little to no impact from the drill.
