Personnel from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office Palm Desert Station, in collaboration with Cal Fire, Eisenhower Medical Center, Acrisure Arena, and several other local agencies will be conducting a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) Drill on Monday, March 4 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The drill will be a controlled exercise onsite at Acrisure Arena, and at local hospitals.

All participating agencies will treat this scenario as a full emergency situation and as a result, the public may see police and ambulance lights, and hear police/fire sirens during this time near the arena and local hospitals.

NOTE: This is a coordinated, multi-agency emergency drill. During the exercise, please do not call 911 UNLESS YOU ARE EXPERIENCING AN EMERGENCY.
