Community-wide active shooter drill to be held
News from Providence Medical Center
POLSON — Providence St. Joseph Medical Center and partnering Lake County agencies, Polson High School, law enforcement, Emergency Medical Services and others will participate in a community-wide active shooter training simulation on Tuesday, Aug. 16, from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
This is a full-scale emergency exercise and will initiate with a simulated mass shooting at Polson High School.
“One of the best ways to prevent, or at least minimize the horrific toll of an armed attacker loose in a school,” said Aaron Wilson, Supervisor of Emergency Management at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, “is to practice a swift response. We hope we never have to use these skills but are better for being prepared.”
