Salem, VA - Law enforcement in our area will have a special drill to ensure public safety.
Officials will hold a safety drill Wednesday at the LewisGale Medical Center. There they will have a mock scenario where an armed intruder will threaten staff and patients in the physicians office. This mock scenario comes after similar incidents occurred around the country last month.
Officials say the drill will begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday and should take 2 to 3 hours to complete.
