TODAY: UWPD doing a disaster drill at Camp Randall.

FROM UWPD Public Information Officer Marc Lovicott: 

At around 7:00 a.m. an explosive sound effect will be heard in Camp Randall Stadium. 

Emergency vehicles will respond in real-time with lights and sirens – neighbors can expect the lights and sirens to cease by 10 a.m. 

Nearby residents should also expect to see smoke, and acting victims with fake blood and injuries. 

The realistic nature of the exercise is designed to better prepare the University for an actual crisis.” 


Expect a slew of emergency vehicles,  from multiple local, state and federal agencies; including UW-Madison Police, Dane County Sheriff’s Office, Madison Police, Madison Fire, State Patrol, Capitol Police, FBI, and others.

Traffic will be affected around Camp Randall and people downtown will notice increased police activity in the area.

The 1400 block of Monroe St (from Regent St to Randall Ave) will be CLOSED from 5am to 5pm.
