FM’s administration, faculty, staff and campus Public Safety department, along with local law enforcement officers and the Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps., responded to three active shooter drills on-campus Wednesday, May 14. The drills were staged to allow members of the campus community to practice responses should a real event ever occur.
“It’s important for our employees to know how to react to a violent situation and how to be leaders to our students; this is what today was all about. We hope we never have to put this day of practice to use,” said FM President Dr. Dustin Swanger.
