Press release. The Wake County Public School System, along with fifteen other law enforcement and emergency response agencies and organizations, will be conducting a major crisis drill on January 24. The drill will test the agencies' combined planning and reaction capacities in the event of a serious incident -- in this case, a simulated attack on a combined elementary and middle school campus. By conducting an exercise dramatizing a truly worst-case scenario, the agencies hope to better prepare for a range of emergencies. The event is scheduled for Monday, January 24, a teacher workday, in Raleigh at Dillard Drive Elementary School and Dillard Drive Middle School. WCPSS is communicating with area residents to prepare them for potential disruptions. The participating fire and EMS agencies are Cary EMS, Cary FD, Raleigh FD, Swift Creek RFD, Wake County EMS, and Western Wake FD. Read entire press release.
