in ,

(HURON COUNTY, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be working alongside members of the Canadian Armed Forces during an exercise in Huron County taking place from May 3rd – 5th inclusive. Military personnel will be deployed in Huron County communities during exercise “Trillium Venture”.

31 Canadian Brigade Group will be conducting training in the Huron and Bruce Counties May 3-5, 2024. This exercise will enhance interoperability with other governmental departments, as we work together to respond to a simulated extreme heat scenario.

Members of the public will see the deployment of Domestic Response Companies (DRCs) and Territorial Battalion Group (TBG) sustainment equipment, and vehicles to validate the ability to deploy and sustain in real time. This is being done to create a more challenging, realistic training exercise, and will see soldiers conducting fire training, wellness checks, simulated search and rescue operations, cooling center establishment, as well as other related activities.

All measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience to those in the area. Members of the public are asked to take extra caution if approaching military vehicles and troops and are thanked in advance for their understanding and co-operation.
