The City of Lubbock is joining forces with ATMOS Energy and Texas811 for a specialized excavation and trench rescue exercise to be held on June 7, 2024.

This exercise will include a trench rescue scenario, providing hands-on experience for emergency responders from various contractors/agencies. The exercise will be located at the field west of the Coronado High School and south of Comfort Suites University and will start at approximately 8:30AM. This exercise will allow first responders to refine their skills and enhance external agency coordination.
