A planned evacuation exercise involving 50 University of Toledo students, faculty and staff was conducted Sept. 29 at 11 a.m. at the Research and Technology Complex 1 building on Main Campus.

The exercise tested evacuation procedures along with a coordinated response from the UToledo Police Department, UToledo Environmental Health and Radiation Safety Department and the Toledo Fire Department.

“While we all work to stay safe and learn to live alongside the COVID-19 virus, other hazards remain and it is important to regularly review and exercise evacuation procedures and response tactics so we are prepared for any emergency,” UToledo Police Chief Jeff Newton said.
