Safety training exercise ensures first responders stay prepared for anything

The City of Sugar Land’s emergency response and support departments teamed up with other local first responder agencies, mental health organizations, and hospitals, for a training exercise to assess the ability of local entities to respond to a complex, no-notice incident. 

This collaborative effort tested the interoperability of multiple organizations. Trainings like this make sure that local partners stay prepared for any event, ensuring resident safety along the way.
