First Responders Planning Training Exercise at Alexandria Synagogue

Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of fire department and police activity at Beth El Hebrew Congregation in Alexandria on Monday — it’s just a drill.

The synagogue at 3830 Seminary Road will be hosting a “a critical incident training exercise” from 8-11 a.m. and 6-9 p.m. on Veterans Day (Nov. 11). Alexandria police and firefighters will be conducting the exercise.

“Residents should expect police activity, interment road closures and a variety of police and fire vehicles,” police said via social media.
