Plymouth Mayor’s Minutes: Investing in Public Safety
Investments in Public Safety
Plymouth’s Public Safety Department partnered with Wayzata Public Schools to hold a large-scale training event to practice and test a reunification process for parents and students in the event of a school evacuation. The drill simulated a scenario where families needed to be reunified after a gas leak. Volunteers from Wayzata High School and others came together to test procedures and refine plans.
“Public safety is job one, and we do that by practicing and training so that when an event does happen, we’re prepared for it,” said Wosje.
The city of Plymouth was on hand to help cut the ribbon at the new North Metro Regional Public Safety Training Facility expansion in Maple Grove. The new facility brings cutting-edge training technology that will be utilized by more than 20 agencies, including Plymouth. The building features amenities to enhance public safety training in decision making, skills, tactics and more.
