A 3 day mass casualty incident training drill was held at the newly completed Warren Memorial Hospital.

Over 250 personnel from emergency service providers participated.

Simulated active shooter scenarios included patients with simulated injures each day.

These drills are designed to help multiple agencies work together in actual emergency situations.

The drill involved the Front Royal Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Office along with the Warren County Office of Emergency Management.

The Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue, Air Care and Valley Health were also involved in the exercise.

A similar drill at Christendom College back in August uncovered some issues that needed to be addressed.

Over all authorities were pleased with the results of this drill observing that response was improving.
