EMERGENCY DRILL HELD ON SHSU CAMPUS THURSDAY

Director of Emergency Management Services at SHSU, David Yebra filled us in on their full-scale emergency response drill Thursday which simulated an attack on campus. This drill was to simulate an active shooter scenario.

He said response units for the exercise were on hand from the university, the City and the County.

Mr. Yebra reports they “learned some good lessons, especially about the importance of clear communication and timely communication to leadership.” He said, “We identified things that we want to work on.”  He said, “The Houston Police Department also sent some officers to observe our exercise, so they could take some of our best practices and use them with similar organizations in Houston.”
