Dispatch Staff Report


The contents of this article have been modified since its original posting.


Columbus-Lowndes emergency response agencies, in cooperation with Mississippi University for Women and Columbus Air Force Base, will conduct a disaster drill on Wednesday, at approximately 8 a.m. on the MUW campus. 


The disaster-preparedness exercise will simulate an active-shooter and chemical release on MUW campus.  


The purpose of this exercise is to test the readiness, response and capabilities of the agencies during a random shooting on a college campus with mass casualties.  


There will also be an after-action review for emergency-response agencies to have an interactive discussion regarding the exercise.
