Officials say a simulated “mass casualty” emergency drill today in Roseville could look like the real thing, and are warning motorists and others to steer clear of PFE Road in the Hilltop Circle area.

Firefighters and law enforcement officers from throughout Placer County will participate in the drill, which involves a simulated train crash as well as a simulated hazardous materials spill.

Nearby residents may see helicopters overhead and hear sirens, officials said. Accident “victims” made up to appear injured.

The emergency preparedness event will take place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
