The Waldo County Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Management Agency (EMA) will host a full scale exercise on Saturday, July 19 at 9 a.m. This exercise will test the emergency response to a mass casualty incident resulting from a school shooting incident. The purpose for this exercise is to demonstrate the ability of law enforcement agencies, fire departments and ambulance services to work together to quickly treat a large number of casualties in a high threat environment.

Media representatives are welcome to attend and document the exercise. Please coordinate with Waldo County EMA prior to the exercise to receive badges and instructions.
