Emergency exercise to be held in Aberdeen city centre

  • 3-28-2012

The biggest emergency response exercise ever seen in the north east of Scotland is to be held in Aberdeen city centre.

The Bon Accord exercise will see 12 fire engines, including a ladder platform, two support units and a command unit take part.

More than 80 fire service personnel will be involved, alongside police, NHS and ambulance staff.

The exercise will take place on Broad Street and at St Nicholas House between 18:00 and midnight on Wednesday.

It is intended to test how Grampian Fire and Rescue Service deals with a major city centre incident, and will be the first time such a large-scale exercise has taken place in the city.

Volunteers from the Scottish Red Cross will be acting as casualties to bring even more realism to the event.
