District, emergency crews to hold training drill May 20

Verona and Fitchburg public safety personnel and staff from the Verona Area School District will hold a training exercise at Stoner Prairie Elementary School Tuesday afternoon.

The training will take place from 3:30-7:30 p.m., and will involve emergency vehicles and personnel moving around the area.

A press release from the Fitchburg fire department asks those in the surrounding neighborhood to not be alarmed, as the drill is a training opportunity for public safety and school district personnel to work together to ensure everyone is adaquately prepared in an actual emergency situation.

The public is welcome to watch the drill from the established perimeter, but is asked to respect the personnel who are training and understand if officials ask you to move you or your vehicle.

The district had earlier planned a full-scale training at Savanna Oaks Middle School for Aug. 19.
