Things may look a bit different on campus and on this homepage today as the university tests its emergency exercise capabilities.
     
The exercise, Harmony 5, gets underway at 9 a.m., and activities will be centred in the Chemistry Building and in the area between the Natural Sciences Building and the Biological & Geological Sciences Building. All roads will remain open.  
 
The exercise will also include testing communication tools. These could include mass emails, an emergency version of the Western home page and emergency-related messaging on the main telephone switchboard.  
 
Campus responders involved in the exercise include:
 
• Campus Community Police Service

• Student Emergency Response Team (SERT)

• Fire Safety and Emergency Management

• HazMat Team

• Emergency Response Team

• Emergency Operations Control Group
