DOVER, Del.- The Dover Police Department will be participating in an emergency response exercise at the Dover Mall on Wednesday, Sept. 25. 

Police said the exercise is scheduled to begin at approximately 6 a.m. and is expected to end and be clear from the property by 9: a.m.

All emergency equipment and personnel will be located on the Dover Mall property and should not affect traffic in the area, according to police. 

These exercises are designed to test the capabilities of the Dover Police Department and other participating agencies in the event of a true emergency. Police said the exercise also allows participants to become more educated about the resources that each individual agency and participant can provide in a true emergency and discuss ways to improve responses to such incidents.  

This incident is not expected to disrupt area traffic, according to police. The department said will be a large gathering of emergency vehicles, equipment, and personnel on site but the public should not be alarmed as this is only a training exercise.
