FSDB to Host Multi-Agency Training Exercises

The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB) will host multi-agency training exercises on the campus from June 30 – July 22, 2022, for the St. Johns Sheriff's Office, St. Augustine Police Department, St. Augustine Fire Department and St. Johns County Fire & Rescue. The various training will focus on emergency responses and will occur in Gregg Hall, located on the southwest corner of the campus (Douglas Ave. between Alfred & Milton St.). Gregg Hall is scheduled for demolition in the fall. These opportunities do not come along very often in the county, and the agencies do their best to train as many personnel as possible.


Training will be held between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and may be visible to the public. Please do not be alarmed by the public safety resources you will see on campus, as these exercises are not actual incidents.


FSDB will host a community engagement meeting in the fall for neighbors to know what to expect during the demolition phase of Gregg Hall and plans to construct the new building.


For more information or questions about the multi-agency training exercises, please contact FSDB Campus Police via email at fsdbpolice@fsdbk12.org.
