Webster CSD, Emergency Responders Announce Large-Scale Drill
Webster CSD is partnering with area fire, emergency medical service, and police agencies to stage a large-scale emergency drill that will provide all agencies with valuable feedback.
The drill takes place on Thursday, June 27 at Schlegel Road Elementary School, 1548 Schlegel Road, from 7:30 a.m.-12:00 noon. Safety during the drill is paramount for all involved, thus necessitating the need for Schlegel Road to be temporarily closed to traffic from Phillips Road to Salt Road from 7:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon. Webster Special Police will direct traffic at these intersections to provide local resident access. (Please note that Webster schools are closed for the summer at the time of this event.)
During the drill, Webster CSD, Webster Police Department, Webster Volunteer Fire Department, West Webster Volunteer Fire Department, Webster Emergency Medical Service, and Northeast Quadrant Advanced Life will simulate and respond to a large-scale school incident to test these agencies’ coordinated response. On-site evaluators will be present throughout to provide feedback that will help develop an after action plan (AAP) that will be provided to all participating agencies to assist with future trainings and any additional needs.
The overall objectives of the drill are as follows:
1. Response: Operational coordination among Webster response agencies and mutual aid companies.
2. Communication: Interoperability communication between all participating agencies.
3. Response: Interagency planning for large scale school emergency response.
