If you see a big emergency response at one of Rochester, Minnesota's old IBM buildings today, Wednesday, or Thursday, (or next week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) it's not a crisis response team, it's a multi-agency training event.

You may see a bunch of emergency vehicles flying up Hiway 52, or up Broadway, but it's a training. To make sure everyone knows what's going on, please share this with your friends and family.

Do not be alarmed if you see a convoy of emergency vehicles heading out to the Rochester International Airport this Thursday morning. First responders, healthcare workers, and airport officials will be at RST for a full-scale training exercise. Read More: Expect To See Numerous Emergency Vehicles at RST on Thursday
