Lewis Co. High School to Hold School Shooting Drill
Written by Rachel McDevitt
Created on October 29, 2013 @ 11:25PM

This Saturday, Lewis County High School will turn into a disaster scene.

That's because the school is holding a school shooting drill to test how well they would respond if  tragedy struck.

Organizers held a meeting Tuesday night to inform parents about the drill, but they would not release specific details because they want it to feel as real as possible. Volunteer students and faculty will come in as if Saturday is a normal school day. The fake victims will be made-up to look hurt and transported to a hospital. Police will see how long it takes them to find and stop the mock gunman.

This drill is unique because it will bring together EMS, two police departments, the 911 call center and the local hospital to test how ready they are along with the high school.

After Saturday's drill, all responding units can evaluate how well they did and prepare for a drill on a larger scale.
