One Pennsylvania school is taking their active shooter drill to a whole new level.
With the start of the school year just kicking off, schools across the country are conducting active shooter drills to ensure that both students and staff are prepared for any worst-scenario events that may happen at their school. Bethel Park High School in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, is doing an active shooter drill today and they’re attempting to make it as real as possible.
According to WPXI, the school has a scheduled active shooter drill today and they’ve enlisted the help of the school police as well as a trained A.L.I.C.E. (which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) team to take part in the drill. And during the actual drill, the A.L.I.C.E. team will be in the hallway, shooting rounds of blanks to make the drill more lifelike so that students would know what to expect if there was actual gunfire.
