ADVISORY: Active Threat Training Thursday at Monte Vista On January 31, 2019, the Town of Danville will conduct Active Threat training at Monte Vista High School. The exercise involves the use of simulated firearms and explosive sounds.
No live ammunition will be used. The training will be limited to the areas within the campus and will not extend into the surrounding neighborhoods. The Active Threat Drill is scheduled to run from approximately 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
The training is designed to simulate a critical incident and provide response training for law enforcement and fire personnel, and allows the Danville Police Department to update and refine essential skills needed to provide the community with the highest level of service possible.
The exercise will involve a number of police officers and emergency services vehicles. The activities taking place on campus will be simulated for training purposes only and there will NOT be an actual event. The Danville Police Department requests that residents and visitors refrain from attempting to enter the east portion of the campus or communicate with the officers involved in the training. This drill will be limited to the high school campus.
No local roadways will be affected. However, parking on the center horseshoe and east parking lot of the Monte Vista High School campus will be off limits during the training event as we will need parking for ambulances, fire trucks, police vehicles and volunteer vehicles. There will be signs posted as a reminder the day prior. Those spots will need to be reserved for the training in order to make it run successfully.
