Large Emergency Drill at Colfax High - Saturday, April 26th
Published on April 16, 2014
Residents need not be alarmed if they spot scores of emergency vehicles at Colfax High School on Saturday, April 26.
Emergency agencies from throughout the area will be participating in a drill, not a real-life emergency.
The 2014 Placer County Multi-Casualty Incident (MCI) drill is scheduled between 8 a.m. and noon.
MCI drills are large, complex multi-casualty incidents designed to tax the resources of responding agencies. They give participants opportunities to practice the kind of coordination needed during major emergencies.
The April 26 drill at Colfax High will give participants a chance to test school communication, reunification and other emergency procedures. The drill scenario focuses on an active shooter being on campus.
