UW Police call disaster drill a success

Posted: Updated:
 MADISON (WKOW) -- UW- Madison police officials call last week's disaster drill at Camp Randall Stadium a big success.

More than 600 people from multiple agencies including the FBI took part in the mock bombing.

One of the biggest issues the agencies faced was communication.

It was a learning experience UW-Police say was valuable for everyone involved.

Marc Lovicott, a spokesman for the UW-Police Department says, "While you get all these different agencies together, they all have to communicate together as well and make decisions together. And while that was great and they did some great things with that, they also recognized that we may want to change some things around, and maybe we should do some things differently."

All of the agencies will get together again for another full scale drill in four or five years.
