Central Oregon Emergency Response Team members move into position during a training exercise Tuesday afternoon at an empty house near the intersection of Northeast Eighth Street and Northeast Penn Avenue in Bend. About 30 members of the tri-county SWAT team were involved in the training, which included a simulated incident in which armed suspects had taken a hostage inside the home. The team trains twice a month, and does at least six large-scale scenario drills each year.
