City of Lewisville to conduct Emergency Preparedness Exercise

In an ongoing effort to improve emergency response, the City of Lewisville will conduct a full-scale emergency preparedness exercise on Friday, March 22, in downtown Lewisville. This real-time simulation provides important hands-on experience to maximize the effectiveness of emergency response, multi-agency coordination, and interoperability.

More than 200 people will participate in the simulated emergency exercise, which will take place from 8 a.m. until about noon outside Lewisville City Hall, 151 W. Church Street, and in Wayne Ferguson Plaza, 150 W. Church Street. The simulation will involve partner agencies and multiple city departments, including police, fire, emergency medical services, public services, parks and recreation, neighborhood services, community relations, and special events.

Residents and visitors in the downtown district might notice additional activity in the area during the exercise, such as:

• Street closure on Church Street between Mill and Charles streets, and a part of Walters Street between Mill and Charles
• Loud noises
• Increased emergency response vehicles
• Increased foot traffic
• Mock victims wearing realistic theatrical make-up

City Hall will remain open during its regular Friday operating hours, 7:30-11:30 a.m. Public access to City Hall will be through the employee entrance on the east side of the building, facing Mill Street.

Parts of the exercise will be held at the emergency treatment areas of Medical City Lewisville but will not impact public access to the emergency room or the hospital.
