Fiserv Forum hosting Functional Training Exercise Thursday with emergency responders

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – If you see numerous emergency vehicles around the new Bucks Arena Thursday, it is only a drill. Fiserv Forum is working with Milwaukee Police, Milwaukee Fire and the Office of Emergency Management to conduct a Functional Training Exercise at the arena from noon to 7 p.m. Thursday.

During the drill, multiple emergency officials will be deployed to Fiserv Forum. The exercise will involve people who will act as victims with loud noise-making devices and simulated weapons. There will be no live weapons as part of the exercise.

The purpose of the exercise is to test the communication of Fiserv Forum, event management and tactical response of public safety entities in case there was ever an emergency.
