Joint training exercise to be held at Millbrae Station Feb. 24

From 8 am to 4 pm on Thursday, Feb. 24, the FBI, BART Police and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department will conduct joint training exercises at Millbrae Station.

A similar event was held last year with the FBI and San Francisco Police Department. The purpose of the training is to ensure the use of common tactics and to check communications interoperability in preparation for possible future emergencies on the system. The training will include skill building exercises and problem-solving scenarios for multiple teams.

Although the training area itself will be away from customer accessed areas, please do not be alarmed if you hear or observe activity related to this special training.

Please do not be alarmed if you see uniformed officers (including SWAT officers) accessing the training area or emergency vehicles parked in the parking lot on that day.

We do not anticipate any disruptions to service. We appreciate your understanding of the need for these types of practice events.
