The exercise will take place at Towson High School located at 69 Cedar Avenue, off of York Road in Towson, 21286. Baltimore County Public Schools will be closed on the day of the exercise.

The public should be aware of the increased presence of emergency response vehicles and personnel at this location beginning as early as 6:30 a.m. and ending by 3:30 p.m. Roads in the area will not be closed; however, the public is asked to avoid the school grounds during these hours so as to not interfere with the activities.
