Simon Fraser University conducted an emergency training exercise today on all three campuses—Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey—in conjunction with the RCMP and other first responder partners.

Safety and security is a top priority at SFU and we are gratified to have been able to undertake this training exercise to test and improve our emergency response processes. The exercise was successful in deepening our learnings for emergency response and in strengthening our partnership with the RCMP—for the safety of all members of our campus communities.

SFU would like to thank the RCMP and other first responders for their expertise and support throughout the exercise. We also thank our campus communities for their cooperation, in particular the many volunteers who participated in the exercise.

Simon Fraser University is consistently ranked among Canada's top comprehensive universities and is one of the top 50 universities in the world under 50 years old. With campuses in Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey, B.C., SFU engages actively with the community in its research and teaching, delivers almost 150 programs to more than 30,000 students, and has more than 125,000 alumni in 130 countries.
