BERKELEY -- Residents can expect to see emergency responders racing around the city this week conducting several training exercises designed to prepare first responders for a multi-casuality incident.

Exercises will take place Monday through Friday at the Berkeley Adult School, 1701 San Pablo Ave., said police spokeswoman Jennifer Coats.

Training is set daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

People should expect to see police and fire crews, members of the city's Barricaded Subject Hostage Negotiation Team and role-players made up to look like causalities. Occasionally fake smoke may be visible as well as water from fire hoses, Coats said.
