Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Wednesday

Hospital activity only a drill

If you witness a commotion Wednesday morning near Sutter Roseville Medical Center, don’t be alarmed. Roseville’s police and fire departments will be working with Sutter Roseville and other public safety personnel to practice their skills for responding to a critical incident. From 9 a.m. to noon, Sutter Roseville is hosting and participating in an “active shooter mass casualty response drill.” The Roseville Police Department, Roseville Fire Department, Rocklin Fire Department, Rocklin Police Department and the FBI are also participating in the exercise. There will be sound effects used and police on scene. No patient care services will be changed or interrupted because of the exercise, event organizers say.
