The Dover Police Department will be participating in an emergency response exercise at the Dover Mall (1365 N. Dupont Highway, Dover, DE) on Wednesday, September 25th, 2019. The exercise is scheduled to begin at approximately 6:00AM and is expected to end and be clear from the property by 9:00AM. All emergency equipment and personnel will be located on the Dover Mall property and should not affect traffic in the area.
These exercises are designed to test the capabilities of the Dover Police Department and other participating agencies in the event of a true emergency. The exercise also allows participants to become more educated about the resources that each individual agency and participant can provide in a true emergency and discuss ways to improve responses to such incidents.
This incident is not expected to disrupt area traffic. There will be a large gathering of emergency vehicles, equipment, and personnel on site but the public should not be alarmed as this is only a training exercise.
Please call 302-736-7130 with any questions or concerns.
