FARMINGTON — Police and fire personnel plan to hold an all-day training session Wednesday at the W.G. Mallett School in downtown Farmington.

Police Chief Jack Pike said the annual training will run through a number of scenarios to train emergency personnel how to respond to critical incidents.

The training will include 25 to 30 people from the Farmington Police Department, Farmington Fire and Rescue and NorthStar Ambulance Service.

The town has held similar training for a few years, but usually at night, Pike said. This year, the drills will be held during the day, which means there will be numerous police and fire vehicles and ambulances around the school on Middle Street, he added.

“We want people to be aware that it is happening and not to be alarmed,” Pike said.

The training is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and last until 5 p.m.
