Violence drill will test disaster planning
On Aug. 14, the UNTHSC Safety Office will lead a drill that will simulate violence on campus to test the Health Science Center’s planning, communications and response to such an incident. The drill will involve many departments across campus and will exercise many resources. The drill won’t interrupt classes or patient care.
Remember, it’s only a drill. No real violence is planned, nor will toy or fake guns or other weapons be used. Peace officers have been instructed not to draw their weapons. For more information on the drill and emergency preparedness at UNTHSC, visit the Safety Office Web site. All UNTHSC’s safety policies and additional material can be found there.
Drills are an integral part of preparation for dealing with various disasters and crises. Your participation is important.
