Drills are vital training
Emergency Preparedness drills are vital in training our staff on appropriate and timely responses to unforeseen emergency situations. They enable us to put forth our best efforts to protect the population that we serve on our campus. These drills are also indispensable tools for first responders, allowing them to continuously hone their specialized skill set in order to keep community members, as well as themselves, safe.
