Over the course of several days in March and April, the Sun Prairie Police Department, along with the Sun Prairie Fire Department and Sun Prairie Emergency Medical Services, conducted Active Threat Training exercises as well as larger scale scenarios at St. Albert the Great Church. This training also included a Command portion where members of each Department’s Command Staff practiced running the response as Unified Command.
The Sun Prairie Police Department would like to extend a huge thank you to the Sun Prairie Fire Department, Sun Prairie Emergency Medical Services, and all of the City Employees who volunteered their time to assist with this training.
We would especially like to thank St. Albert the Great Church for providing us with an incredible venue for the training, a tremendous amount of help with organizing volunteers, and assistance with the execution of the training. The training would not have been nearly as beneficial without the help of St. Albert the Great Church staff, and all of the volunteers that participated as role players.
As you look through the photographs, you will see members of Sun Prairie Police, Sun Prairie Fire, and Sun Prairie EMS working together.
This was a perfect example of how a community works together to prepare everyone to operate as a team during critical incidents.
