Heads up! At about 9 a.m. today — Thursday, 2/2 — there’s going to be an emergency drill at the Metro Expo Line La Cienega/Jefferson Station, as well as at a nearby parking structure on the southeast corner of La Cienega and Jefferson Boulevards. The drill will simulate a fire inside a train car and a law enforcement incident in a nearby parking structure. The drill is one of several that have to be conducted in preparation for the opening of Expo.
Metro conducts emergency drills on new and existing rail lines throughout the year in an effort to better coordinate response times and communications with Metro Rail staff and emergency responders.
