Police officers, firefighters, and emergency vehicles will swarm Big Bend Community College's Nursing Building on Wednesday, April 15th during an active shooter exercise beginning at 1:15 p.m.
College officials say passers-by might hear an occasional fake gunshot during the drill. BBCC classes will be in session today, so students, faculty and staff have been notified of the drill.
According to Kyle Foreman, BBCC Director of Campus Safety and Security, students and staff members have volunteers to be actors in the drill. The exercise is meant to be an opportunity for local law enforcement agencies to practice a multi-hazard plan and incident command structure for an active shooter scenario.
