The Madison County School District, in conjunction with the Madison Police Department, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the Ridgeland Police Department, the Madison Fire Department and the Pafford Ambulance Service will be conducting an active threat exercise at Madison Central High School on Monday, July 31st at 3:30 PM.
The exercise is designed to practice and implement law enforcement, school employees/management, as well as other emergency personnel response to a simulated active threat incident at the school.
Key to any successful real threat response is the ability to implement emergency response plans and coordinate multi-agency participation through resource interoperability. This exercise will help all the agencies and personnel involved to better coordinate these multiple responses.
Consequently, there will be significant law enforcement and other first responder presence in and around Madison Central High School during the event.
Members of the public should not be alarmed as this will only be an exercise.
