The City of Hamilton will be conducting its annual mock emergency exercise this Thursday.

During the exercise, citizens may notice an increase in Fire, Police, and EMS presence around the Multi-Agency Training Centre at Stonechurch and Nebo roads.
Over 250 people will take part, including participants from the City, Police and Fire Department, Paramedic Services, Mohawk College, Sheridan College, Horizon Utilities, Salvation Army and the Canadian Red Cross.
Regular city and emergency services will not be interrupted by the exercise.
