UB Police, in collaboration with several university units and local, state and federal emergency responders, delivered a rapid and effective response and recovery to a full-scale campus emergency exercise coordinated by UB's emergency management department on July 19.
Joshua B. Sticht, deputy chief of University Police who served as a senior controller of the exercise, said one of the things that has been learned from conducting emergency exercises is how important it is to involve all emergency-service partners.
“It is critically important for us to know what the emergency responders and firefighters expect out of us, and that we have a good idea of what they are going to be able to do, as well,” he said.
“As a result, I feel we are gaining a better understanding that will help us to continue collaborating and working together for everyone’s benefit.”
