Multiple agencies including Salina Regional Health Center, Kansas Wesleyan University, the Salina Police Department, the Salina Fire Department and Saline County EMS are teaming up for an active shooter drill on Tuesday.
The scenario for the drill is an active shooter on campus at Kansas Wesleyan University. The drill will begin on the Kansas Wesleyan University campus at 8 a.m. and should end at the campus by 9 a.m.
During this time the Salina Fire Department, Salina Police Department and Saline County EMS will be present on the KWU campus. Students in the KWU’s Emergency Management and Criminal Justice programs will be participating in the drill and students will be in full makeup replicating their injuries. The students will be triaged in Muir Gymnasium and then transported to Salina Regional Health Center to continue the drill at the hospital until approximately 11 a.m.
Officials want to stress to the public that this is only a drill. Salina Regional Health Center conducts mass casualty drills two times per year for accreditation purposes, as well as to train staff should a real disaster occur.
