District plan another mock emergency drill

Lincoln County School District will conduct another mock emergency drill involving local police and other emergency management agencies at a Newport school sometime during Spring Break. This drill – the second in a planned series of preparedness exercises for county emergency responders – will feature an armed intruder scenario, according to Sue Graves, LCSD safety coordinator. Graves is withholding the exact time, date, and location for the staged event to “preserve an element of surprise” for participants, and to “add to the realism” of the scenario. “We wanted to alert the public about the event in hopes of minimizing alarm or confusion,” said Newport Police Chief Mark Miranda. “If they see a large concentration of police cars, fire vehicles, and ambulances heading for a school, they can assume the training exercise is underway.” Community members can hear more specific information broadcast by local radio stations at the start of the event.
