Critical Incident Training | August 29, 2018

Notice Type: 

On August 29th the CWU police department will work with other law enforcement agencies, Kittitas Valley Fire Rescue, University staff and the CWU community to aid in preparation for a critical incident.  This exercise will primarily take place within the SURC; however, there will be portions of the training that takes place in the walkway between Wilson Hall and the SURC.

In December of 2017, we conducted a similar exercise in the SURC.  During that training, we ensured that the community and participants were safe with numerous safety measures.  We will again be placing signs outside the building and placing personnel outside to inform the community of the exercise should they have questions or concerns.

This drill will take place in the morning with the setup beginning as early as 6:30 am and lasting until approximately 11:30 am.  During that time participants will receive education on how to respond if the exercise was a real event.  Then again after the event, we will follow up with all the community members to answer any questions.


  • 08:45 – 09:00 check-in
  • 09:00 – 0945 Classroom / assignments
  • 09:45 – 10:00 move into place
  • 10:00 exercise begins

If you are interested in volunteering you must be over the age of 18, and a member of the campus community (student or staff). I highly encourage supervisors to forward this on to student employees interested in participating. Participants are required to complete the waiver at this link by 5 p.m. on August 28, and to be present for the duration of the training, 8:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. The SURC will be closed completely from  9:45 a.m.- 12 p.m. for the training.

If you have any questions please contact:
