The following message is from the UMW Office of Emergency Management and Safety:
UMW is assisting the City of Fredericksburg’s fire and police departments with training exercises in and around the vicinity of Chandler Hall (near the intersection of College Avenue and Parcell Street) during the periods of May 28-30 and June 2, 2013. On these dates, you may observe fire/police vehicles as well as emergency personnel (including K-9s) conducting training for their regular and specialized units. You should not be alarmed by the presence of these agencies on campus, and you should not contact local emergency phone lines. This will be well-prepared and safely executed training under highly controlled and supervised conditions.
