There will plenty of flashing lights…dash cams…and action at the Grand Forks Airport this week and next. The G-F-K will be the site of an Emergency Vehicle Operations Course being run by the Grand Forks Police Department. G-F-P-D Lt-Derick Zimmel says the training course is held periodically to keep officers sharp. Zimmel says driving under stress is a little different than everyday driving and it reminds officers of what police cars are capable of doing.
Zimmel says they want to make sure the public is aware of the mock exercise to avoid confusion and concern.
The course will be staged on the south tarmac near the former Fed Ex building. The exercise is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week - as well as June 19th and 20th.
