Active Shooter Drill @ CD East
 
August 9, 2019
 

Today multiple agencies came together at Central Dauphin East High School for an Active Shooter Drill. The drill itself has been in the works for over a year and crews have been preparing for months. Crews from Swatara Township and other agencies performed multiple scenarios with focuses on neutralizing the threat and utilizing a Rescue Task Force concept to remove victims. The Rescue Task Force is a relatively new concept that allows Fire & EMS personnel to work directly alongside Law Enforcement to quickly assess and remove victims so they can receive medical care faster and increase the percentage of survival. Thank you to everyone that came out to make this possible.
