Briefly: Bomb squad training may be noisy

By
March 11, 2011 |

If you hear explosions north of the Davis city limits later this week, never fear — it’s just some routine police training.

The Davis Police Department, in conjunction with the Yolo County Bomb Squad and the Sacramento office of the FBI, will conduct a post-blast investigation class this week, Bomb Squad Commander Nick Concolino said.

As part of that training, there will be a series of small explosions Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at the police range along Pole Line Road north of Covell Boulevard, Concolino said.

Depending on the weather conditions, the explosions may be heard as far away as the Wildhorse area, the north end of F Street and Anderson Road, and County Road 29 near Road 102.
