UTICA, N.Y. – St. Elizabeth College of Nursing (SECON), in conjunction with the Utica Police Department (UPD) Metro SWAT Team, conducted an “Active Shooter Drill” for its College staff and students on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at the College campus. The drill is part of the College’s Campus Safety and Security program and is designed to provide students, faculty and staff with a scenario that mimics an actual situation involving an active shooter on campus.
The SECON Administration, UPD and key personnel from the Mohawk Valley Health System have all taken a proactive stance in keeping the SECON community on alert and practicing for a situation that hopefully will never occur. A debriefing followed at the conclusion of the drill.
