FARGO — There was a gathering of first responders around the Fargo High Rise Tuesday, May 17, but it wasn't in response to an emergency.

Fargo Cass Emergency Management, along with the U.S. Army North and local first responders conducted a joint training scenario from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Fargo High Rise at 101 Second Street South.

A large presence of first responder and emergency vehicles were around the High Rise building as well as the Dike West/Island Park parking lots during this time.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
