Planned Houston Fire Department Drills at 1 p.m. today

The Houston Fire Department (HFD) will be conducting drills in the Vine Street parking garage at 1 p.m., today. Due to the large HFD presence in the area, the University of Houston-Downtown Police Department also will be present during these exercises. The planned drills should not inconvenience the campus community.
