Terror Response Drills Take Place In 10 Denver Locations

DENVER (CBS4) – Ten different terrorism-response drills took place in the Denver metro area on Friday.

Approximately 80 different police and fire agencies went through drills in the different locations, which include the Park Meadows Mall. At the mall a CBS4 crew captured video of a SWAT team preparing to enter the mall with guns drawn.

First responders were working with volunteers in mock emergency scenarios and said they wanted to make things seem as real as possible.

It’s called “Operation Mountain Guardian” which is a terrorist-based, full-scale emergency exercise.

Aside from the mall, locations where the drills were taking place included Union Station, Sports Authority Field at Mile High and two schools.

The drill included simulated gunfire, weapons and smoke.

There was little public impact from the drills.

The exercise was paid for by a grant from the Homeland Security Administration.
