The Riley County Police Department along with members of the Manhattan Fire Department, Riley County EMS, and other agencies and organizations in the area to include Life Star, will be participating in an emergency services educational training exercise on Friday, April 25, 2014.  Poyntz Ave. will be closed to traffic from Sunset to Oak Drive from approximately 7:45 AM until 10:30 AM. 

This exercise will involve a simulated vehicle collision for the purposes of educating students and staff of USD 383 (more specifically the Manhattan High School West Campus located at 2100 Poyntz Avenue) on the dangers of driving distracted or intoxicated.

Though there will be an increased amount of emergency personnel in the area, please be reminded that this is only a simulated response for the purpose of training and education. For more information about this event contact the Public Information Officer for the Riley County Police Department or the Director of Communications for USD383.
