On Saturday 6/11, the Newton Police Department and Newton Fire Department will be hosting an active shooter training at Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s Ambulatory Care Center at 159 Wells Ave. Activity for the drill will begin at 7:30am and conclude around 1pm.
Although this is a drill, it will sound very realistic. There will be sirens, fire alarms, and police officers will be firing blanks, which sound the same as gunshots. There will be a lot of activity and traffic in the area due to the number of partners participating in the drill and partial road closures.
Please do not be alarmed as this is a scheduled training drill.
