The Laguna Beach Police Department has partnered with the Laguna College of Art & Design (LCAD) in a full-scale active shooter exercise on Wednesday January 10 2018.
The Active Shooter Exercise is from 9:00am thru 5:00pm at LCAD main campus located at 2222 Laguna Canyon Road.
All activities will occur on LCAD property.
The purpose of this exercise is to test the interagency capabilities and the mission readiness of Laguna Beach first responders during an active shooter incident.
In addition to Laguna Beach police officers and firefighters, the exercise will involve personnel from our surrounding law enforcement and fire department agencies including Irvine, UCI, Newport Beach, and Costa Mesa.
During the exercise you may hear sirens and simulated gunfire coming from the area of Laguna College of Art & Design.
Laguna Canyon Road will remain open throughout the event and traffic control officers will be in place to mitigate any traffic congestion.
The exercise will not be open to the public and only authorized personnel and the media will be allowed to attend.
This exercise is partially funded through a federal grant received by the Anaheim/Santa Ana Urban Area Security Initiative.
