CORVALLIS, Ore. - As football season approaches at Oregon State, emergency personnel took to Reser Stadium to train for scenarios they hope never to face.

The first responders joined forces to be ready if and when an emergency situation unfolds during Oregon State's 2018 football season.

"I think this is extremely important because it allows all of these agencies to work together in a training environment and prepare," said David Busby from Corvallis Fire & Rescue. "Not that we think these things are going to happen, but we want to be prepared for them in case they do."

Taking part in three emergency scenarios, first responders trained to be as efficient as possible if a crisis arises.
