May 25 2019 Event
The City of Dayton recognizes that the May 25 HSK rally will be an important time for our residents to stand together and acknowledge that we are a community that celebrates inclusion, diversity, equality and acceptance. On this page, you will find a collection of resources including news updates and an event calendar highlighting activities being held by a variety of community groups. We look forward to engaging with you and sharing updates.
While City officials and other local leaders are urging the community to avoid the downtown area on May 25, the City has implemented numerous training and operational initiatives as preparation for possible emergencies and large demonstrations.
SEE SOMETHING WE SHOULD BE AWARE OF?
The Dayton Police Department is asking for community assistance on May 25. If you witness someone in need of medical attention, serious injury, or a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. If you see something that looks suspicious, contact 333-COPS or 225-HELP (both are non-emergency numbers to Regional Dispatch).
PLANNING AND PREPARATION FOR MAY 25
Our preparations began immediately after the Honorable Sacred Knights obtained a permit from Montgomery County. The City of Dayton has implemented numerous training and planning initiatives in order to ensure we are prepared for emergencies and large demonstrations.
We have convened a committee on Safety and Emergency Preparedness and launched a series of trainings for City employees to become familiar with the National Incident Management System and Incident Command System as called for in our Regional Emergency Operations Plan. Senior City employees are receiving more advanced NIMS/ICS training.
The City of Dayton is also working closely with our regional partners, and a special event planning group has been meeting regularly.
