UCR Enterprise Risk Management has engaged the Countywide Hazardous Operations Group (CHOG) for a large-scale multi-agency training and exercise event on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 as part of its emergency response efforts, and to promote a culture of collaboration with local agencies and jurisdictions. Approximately 120 expected participants include: State of California Office of Emergency Services (OES), Cal Fire, Riverside City Fire Department, Riverside County Environmental Health, Riverside County Emergency Management Department, Riverside County Sheriff Hazardous Device Team, March Air Reserve Base, Air National Guard, Riverside Police Department, Riverside County Public Health, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), City of Corona Fire Department, City of Hemet Fire Department, and Municipal Water District; along with the UC Police Department.


We would like to thank all our campus and community partners and participants for joining us in this endeavor.

A special thank you to for providing lunch to the first responder participants for the event


Campus Impact:

First responder vehicles will be staged in Parking Lot 6 and the exercise will take place in various locations on campus, Lot 44, School of Medicine Research Building, and the Genomics Building. Campus community and surrounding neighborhood community members should be aware this is only a drill and not an actual emergency. The impact to University faculty, staff and students as well as the community will be kept at a minimum.
