MADISON, Ala. – If you saw a heavy police presence at James Clemens High School on Tuesday, it was all part of a drill.
For the third year in a row, students from various departments got to participate in a mock trauma drill.
Madison City Schools spokesman John Peck said the biomedical and theater classes staged the mock disaster to simulate real-life scenarios.
“This hands-on experience gives our students an opportunity to really apply their skills,” said teacher Ashley Steinert. “And what better way for them to learn than in a simulation where no one is injured or going to be harmed from this. It`s completely unexpected and so it`s just a really great opportunity for learning.”
The Jets Press Team documented the simulation and will use the footage to make a PSA about driving under the influence for the school later this year.
