Cops to hold bomb squad training in Candlestick Park this weekend 

The developers who plan to build on the site of Candlestick Park may have backed off their plans to implode the stadium due to concerns from neighbors, but that's not stopping the Police Department from conducting bomb squad training there this weekend, Officer Albie Esparza said in a statement Wednesday.

The department's Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit will be conducting training inside the stadium Saturday and Sunday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Esparza said.

The training is not open to the public and is not related to the stadium's demolition. However, “loud noise may be heard during this training,” Esparza said.

Any questions related to the training exercises can be answered by the department's media relations unit at (415) 553-1651.
