Mock Disaster Planned at Penn State DuBois

10/29/2008 —

DuBOIS – Administrators at Penn State DuBois wish to inform the public that a disaster drill will be held on Thursday, November 6, at 4:00 p.m. at Penn State DuBois.  Local police departments, fire departments and emergency medical service personnel will all participate in the drill. 

This disaster drill has been designed to simulate a situation in which a shooting has occurred, and an armed person is still on campus.  The purpose of the drill is to continue to improve and test the campus emergency plan. The drill will make students, faculty and staff more familiar with the plan, and afford emergency responders an opportunity for training and testing of their strategies.  

Penn State DuBois and Emergency Service Personnel want the public to know that there should be no reason for alarm during the November 6 exercises; this is only a drill.   

Your media coverage is also welcome during the event.
