Preparedness stressed in active shooter training exercise at West Forsyth High
SchoolShooting 17 10x WEB
Less than five minutes after the 911 call, deputies arrived at West Forsyth High School, sirens blaring and lights flashing. Some entered on the first floor while others ran up to the school’s second level, all with the same goal in mind: find the shooters and keep students, teachers, administrators and deputies safe. The active shooter training drill — a situation emergency personnel practiced Tuesday but hope to never have to respond to — was put on by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, the fire department, the Forsyth County Board of Education, the Department of School Safety and other county groups.
