From the City of Minneapolis:

The Minneapolis Office of Emergency Management will be hosting a training exercise simulating a full-scale public safety emergency 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014 (exercise begins at 9 a.m.). This exercise will include participants from the Minneapolis Fire Department, Minneapolis Park Police, St. Paul Fire, Emergency Medical Services Community, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, United States Coast Guard, and the Minnesota National Guard’s 55th Civil Support Team as well as other agencies. While folks in the area may hear loud noises and possibly see smoke, this is only a training exercise. The exercise poses no danger to the public, so please do not call 911 or 311 about this exercise. That will help operators remain available to handle actual emergencies.
