Today, June 4th, Tufts University will conduct an emergency preparedness training exercise with the cities of Somerville and Medford, the Cambridge Health Alliance, and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. Beginning at 8 a.m., you may notice an increase in the number of police, fire, and emergency vehicles on the Tufts campus. You may also see ambulances transporting volunteers posing as patients to Somerville Hospital. All activities will be simulated. No actual hazards or chemicals will be used. Emergency vehicles taking part in the training will not use lights or sirens. The exercise is scheduled to end at noon, but emergency vehicles will be on campus into the afternoon while participants review the exercise. Portions of streets on campus will be closed, including Talbot Avenue, Lower Campus Road, and Latin Way. All city streets will remain open.
