Mock Emergency Scenario Planned at LewisGale Medical Center Wed.

Posted:

Salem, VA - Don't be alarmed if you see a lot of first responders at Lewis Gale Medical Center Wednesday evening.

Officials say they are holding a special safety drill.

The drill includes a mock scenario where an armed intruder will threaten staff and patients in the physician's office.

This drill comes after similar incidents occurred around the country last month.

Again this is only a drill, a planned exercise.

Officials say the drill will start at 6 p.m. and should take two to three hours to complete.
